We live in an age where the individual is front and center. Everything that is sold to us helps define who we are and how we are different from others.
And yet, there are systems in place to guide us through the entirety of our existence. There is a path and a general expectation that everyone should take it.
Education. Work. House. Marriage. Children. Retirement. Death.
To know when to rely on existing systems, but to also understand when to deviate for the sake of what we actually want from our lives, that is one of our greatest challenges.
