When you are young, everyone expects you to find your path, to change. There is bias against respecting who you are now, because you are unfinished, but hope for your future.
When you are older, everyone expects you to have already arrived. You have may have succeeded or you may have failed, but you are largely finished.
Nonsense. Don’t strive to be something else when you are young. Don’t settle into the ruts when you are older.
absolutely. i see so many young people trying way too hard to be something they may not be. and way too many older people not trying half hard enough!
