I have been good all my life

I know I have been so good to my family. I am the eldest so I believe I have the responsibility to oversee my siblings because my parents are away. But now that I have graduated in college, I want to move out and look for a job so I can help my family financially but my Mother said that I have to take care of my siblings because she's in other country and I don't have to rush things because the right job will come to me in the right time. But the problem is I really want to find myself; get a good job; learn how to live on my own and be independent and I do not want to wait for eternity because if I will not do a way in order to grow professionally, I don't think that time will ever come to me. So please help me think. What shall I do? Do I have to follow my heart and dreams or my Mom?

The goodness from your well-being will not be lost if you follow your heart to something. You can still be a good daughter to look over your other siblings. It is a matter of having compromise between you and them.

It's one tough decision that you have to make..if your siblings are old enough to take care of themselves then you can make your mom understand & pursue your dreams. You are not getting any younger & your mom didn't raise you to stay in the house. You are indeed a very good older sister!

And what of Mom in another country,those are her children, she should b e supporting them too if they and not old enough to work?Go o ut on yo your own and get that really good job.It would be the best way to help your family.
