What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take–but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?

In my mind the biggest risk I took was when I enrolled in college. It was a  risk for me, I was young I had no idea who will pay my tuition fees. My father passed away, my mother had no income. She was a housewife, my eldest  brother spent all of Dad’s money in a business he had no clue about.

Where I come from,there is no such thing as a  student loan. If I wanted to study my mother would have to pay for my books and tuition fees.It was not possible for her, the money dad left was wasted by my eldest brother.

Fortunately I had two older brothers who encouraged me to register in the local college and they agreed to take care of my educational expenses, both  were working and getting a decent salary. They also took care of the household expenses which included fees for my younger siblings.

I’m not keen on taking any other kind of risks.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing with us this risk about entering college. Often, success exists on the other side of risks.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I’m so sorry for the lost, sister! May Allah put your dad’s soul in a great place. Ameen! You were like my younger sister now. Luckily, she studies in University freely, but yes she need any cost for her life there. I believe in you, you’re such a great person, dear! 🙂
