Realizing, as a young woman, that many people don’t grow was a total shock to me. And a major disappointment. I don’t know who slapped this particular pair of rose-colored glasses on me (probably my beautiful mother) but I came up believing that our challenge in life was to grow and evolve and learn from experience to become better people. When I woke up and realized that it’s not the goal for everybody, and many people never move forward, I just couldn’t see the point. If we’re not trying to get better and be better then why are we here? We’re just taking up space.
