Dreams unfulfilled

I had so many dreams like others from childhood. When I was a little girl, my dream was to become a Police officer. I can still remember the day when I went to a Mazar with my parents and prayed to Allah "Please accept my prayers and give me an opportunity to become a Police officer." My father always wanted me to be a doctor just like many other parents. It was so typical, isn't it? But in my mind I always wanted to be someone different. Four or five years later my Police officer dream faded away and a new dream emerged in my mind. It was about becoming a cricket player. But as a girl I did not get enough support from family. So I had to say goodbye to my dream.

My parents work in banks. I continued to dream again and this time it was not a unique or different dream. I decided to be a banker. In 10 years from now, I want to see myself in the topmost position in a bank and earning a lot of money. 

I am an animal lover. Whenever I move past katabon animal shops, I see different animals locked in small cages. I can see their sadness and can feel their pains. So I decide to free the animals by buying them and build a safe place for them. I know this sounds crazy, may be for this, this so called society will call me by many names, such as mad, crazy, etc. May be I have to say goodbye to my dream again for the sake of the society. Why can't we refuse the society rule? I know we can't, because we are bound by this society and we can not break the rule of the society.
