What do you want to be when you grow up? This was a common question we kiddos were asked by adults who towered over us and grinned. I’m not sure if you heard it too during your childhood years, but it’s one of those weird conversations that has incredible staying power.
This pressure to lock ourselves down into one role is something we are taught from a young age. The pressure continues as we become adults. When you meet someone new, chances are, they will ask you: What do you do for a living?
It’s kind of a bizarre question to ask someone. Because we all do lots of things in our lives, don’t we?
