What Should I Do?

I thought I knew what I wanted to do. I thought for sure I would become a doctor like my parents. They kind of expected me to become one. "No pressure. Do what you want..." They said. But for some reason I got the feeling that there was pressure. That I should become a doctor. As I grew older I found I loved reading. I decided I wanted to become an author of fiction books for teens. When I told my parents they said, "You need to become something that will make money and that you enjoy." Are these things both possible? Does this really make sense? I thought to myself. And so now I'm stumped. I don't know what I would like to become. I want something unique, different. Something that will bring people happiness and make this world a better place. I guess I just have to keep searching until I find what I'm looking for.

kinda late to comment, but no one else has so oh well, 1) you are awesome for liking anime and manga 2)You should never let your parents decide your life 3) Yes their is plenty of jobs that can bring in money and be fun, but depends on the person, I am going to be a Video Game Designer, I love video games so I figured why not creat one? It makes people happy, in my opinion makes the world a better place, and It brings in money :) Oh and an author is a great job, if you do it I'll buy your book:D
