Adulting can be hard because we go through our childhood experiences, looking for this journey, this end goal of becoming an adult. And so often we get prepared for adulthood with the focus on how we’re going to take care of ourselves financially, what we’re going to do to be able to afford to care for ourselves materially. And that’s really, really important. And unless we’ve had someone to come along to tell us that we are so much more than the jobs that we have and the material things that we’re able to accumulate, that we’re also human beings who are here on this planet encountering relationships and circumstances and parts of ourselves, then we may also find ourselves in a position of negotiating and figuring out who we are and how to take care of ourselves.
