Life is not a road map, society and cultures around the world have repeatedly told us what they expect of us from birth:

Schooling, work, marriage, parenthood, family settlement and retirement.

But life is not linear; it doesn’t always go as planned. The circumstances and realities of life can make it difficult for many people to meet some of these expectations. Plus people want different things.

This is why it’s unethical to pressure or shame anyone for struggling or for making choices that are out of norm. Pressure creates comparison and it leads people to feel left behind in life. Don’t let anyone sell you the map to their expectations. Write your own story, create your own map.
