We all have complicated histories. When was the last time your past experiences informed a major decision you’ve made?
Fortunately for me I really didn’t have complicated histories.
I was twelve when my father passed away, all the decisions regarding where we’d settle was made by my Mom. She thought there was no reason to stay away from our homeland, therefore we packed our bags and left.
We settled in a small town, it provided everything we needed such as schools and colleges. After graduating from high school I registered in the local college, completed two years and decided to go to Dhaka city to complete the rest of my education.
Things could have been complicated if my two brothers refused to pay my tuition and residence fees but they were very co-operative, they paid my fees regularly, all I was expected to do was study. I kept my end of the bargain, and successfully completed my education without any problems.
I did not have to make any major decision like quitting school to get a job.
