Our society tends to rush our high schoolers to pick a path and stay with it the rest of our lives. We’re told to go to college and major in the career that you want to do. We’re told this at 18 years old. With such thinking comes pressure to do just that to remain in the good graces of society, no matter how little sense it makes.

When we graduate college, we’re expected to find a job in our field and hopefully, stay with that company for as long as they’ll have us. This societal thinking doesn’t allow us to truly explore who we are and what we want to be – what our purpose is for this life. As such, too many people are forced to give up on their dreams in order to maintain that societal norm.
