A friend of friend, asking for career advice, said that he/she knows only what he/she does not want to do but not what he/she wants because he/she is used to do what being told.

If you do not know what you want for yourself, nobody else is going to figure that out for you. And even if they tell you, it is for them, not you.

Our education system is focusing more on technical than the much more important life skills, such as how to interact with other people, how to live a happy life, how to manage emotions, etc., which we tend to learn in an ad-hoc way.
