He’s gotten a new job. One that pays over $115,000 a year with bonuses and incentives. He could easily make close to $200,000 a year or more. He’s 28 years old. What the fuck am I doing?
My brother was recently hired on at a franchise company where he’ll make the above income. He has a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics? or something like that. I’m glad for him, but at the same time, damn.
I was the one who was moving in the right direction. I was the one who’s future was all roses while his was covered in obscurity. Not anymore. Talking to him today on the phone I wondered if there isn’t something else I’m supposed to be doing. I knew there wasn't, but it just seems like I'm in limbo while others are moving on around me.
Now, don't get me wrong here, I’m glad that he’s doing well. It's just that he’s younger than me and will have been doing quite well while I struggle with debt, loans, and a $40,000 or so a year resident salary for 4+ years. But then who becomes a doctor to get rich? No one who knows better that's for sure.
