Nice To meet You
Undeniably, it was a great luck of mine to know, since very early age, what I wanted to be when I grow up: a scientist!
However there was no science that I was taught at school, no law of physics or mathematics that was able to explain all these feelings that were governing my behaviour. I could see that others were also having feelings, some times different, some times the same, and sometimes they were acting in inexplicable manners that they were even unaware of! How was that possible? At least the grown ups..they should know. Their lives were affected and they couldn't see how!
Parents and teachers had little to say in explanation of my questions. My main information source, an encyclopaedia of 10 volumes, bought in 1979 when I was born, didn't give me any good answers on the subject. In this small village of a greek Island during the 80's, I was even lucky to have a small school library. Literature, was initially a door to the human inner experience and it was fascinating reading the thought process of the characters followed by actions! A whole new invisible world.
Finally, early at high school, I heard the word: Psychology! I was indeed going to become a scientist!
It was a disaster, my parents believed I would never get a job and I will go to waste. Μy teachers tried to discourage me from pursuing studies in psychology as there was no real profession out there, no other student or anyone I knew was finding this idea of mine a good one. But I had no choice!
To this day, 25 years after high school, I still vote for psychology as my ticket for development, understanding and learning what fascinates me the most: Human experience! Most importantly, I cherish, the ability it gives be to stand next to people's most sacred moments and experiences, helping them to make this little time we have on earth, the best experience possible!
What an honour!
