so i have been arguing back and forth with mom about me seeking job... and the ones she looks for pay fairly well but don't polish any of my skills or reflect any of my talents, they just want a person who can operate a computer and keep files and speak in English — which even an AI robot can do... while my dream job is where i get to make art, or edit novels, or be at HR, or even a librarian's job is more desirable than that of a bank's! because i do wanna earn a lot, but i wanna be happy and satisfied with my work life! is that too impractical?
It is not too much to ask, no. That's a tough spot to be in.
Follow your dream and do what you love. I've chased a paycheck and it sucks. It becomes a self-licking ice cream cone as one of my better bosses once said. I'd find the job/s you love and do those.
I wonder here: is this possibly a case of your mom's bark being worse than her bite? Like, if you got the editing job or the librarian job would she just bitch at you and leave it at that or would there be worse consequences?
To your point, though, you're right: a job you don't like is depressing af and that has a cascading effect through your life. Keep pursuing the one you really love.
There aren't many opportunities... But yeah, I'd wanna chase my dreams
