I really need a big, major help now.
To give some short 'background' about myself and my 'trapped' story of life (or perhaps rather, 'major dilemma') :
If there's ONE thing that I deeply regretted the most in my entire life, it's that I was still "naive/unknowledgable" enough, back then about 8-10 years ago, that I just listened to what everybody seemingly said/told me (mostly my "Chinese" traditional big-family members) about taking the WRONG major/4-years Degree (which is in Business: Finance & Management), a major/Degree that I actually have almost ZERO interests in it.
As a result of that premature decision back then, then coupled with me going back to my home country, again, doing as-I-told to work 6 years in the family-business (furniture) & then now another 3-years helping my dad's business,..now at 30, I've seemed to be more lost, confused, even feeling frustrated/helpless & hopeless than ever before! (due mainly to AGE and society/parental's expectations of a 30-year old eldest son) !
Now, at 30, I'm feeling so stuck/trapped , often don't know what to do,...and can't help shaking the thought that "I've perhaps majorly screwed my life, taking all those wrong decisions in the past back in those 'naive' days, that made me sadly stuck/trapped now.."
I've always got interested in more of the "abstract, creative, imaginative, and spiritual, mystery" sides in this life,
and I used to, and actually still, dream to be a FULL-time well-known musician/songwriter/composer,
but alas, with how dire & sad the Music Industry state currently right now (ie: it's turned into the "all-about-Money/Profits-and-commercial-tunes/mere-PRODUCT" only, instead of REAL music), I've actually started to seek out & explore other ventures, and have since then seemed to find another possible new ventures/interests, such as perhaps to -eventually- work either as a Researcher, to especially research the 'esoteric'/mysterious links between human's powerful IMAGINATIONS (eg: "where did it really come from??..") and the existence of Consciousness, physical manifestation of the Universe (or even Multiverse), & God.
Or another new interests of mine: to work as video-game designer, or movie-makers (screenwriters? producers?)
or even a teacher, which might be related with the "research" I've mentioned above, basically teaching in/for more "esoteric, spiritual" aspects of this vast, mysterious, Grand Life.
My first important & urgent question is: which field of study (or work) that specifically fit my new interests above?
Then, my MAIN, and VERY URGENT question now also is:
if I took the wrong (4-years) Degree back at University, (and also wrong "job-experiences" ie: family businesses) in the past,
and now want to work in a completely unrelated field,
where it -unfortunately- often seems to need a related work/education degree (for the "track record") , while my options are currently -unfortunately again- seems to be limited due to 1) Money and 2) parent's (especially my father's) approval?
or, is another "year(s)-long" uni Degree is actually NOT really required/necessary these days, and I could simply get a sort of a "Certification" short-classes ?
say, for example, a 3-4 months certification class in Psychology (to get at least a "Certified" certificate, as a Psychologist, so as for the "track record" necessary for me to be able to venture further into for example: research, or writing a stimulating book, with enough credibility in the public?
Hope to really hear back good, practical inputs/feedback from many of you here, to solve my seemingly-hopeless-&-frustrating 'stuck/trapped' work/education dilemma here..
