When you’re looking down the road you’re on and you can see the crossroad to middle-age on the horizon down there, you tend to start reevaluating things, perhaps most importantly the state of the world, your place in it and ultimately where you are in life. What did today’s audit reveal to me? Well, I’m a lot more conflicted now than I ever thought I would be at this age. As a progressive-minded person, this revelation comes heavy. My other problem? I require entirely too much external validation of who I am and what I do, or can do if given the opportunity. It’s not about being popular or becoming famous. It’s about simply being acknowledged. It’s ultimately about acquiring respect as a valuable member of society, in all the ways I am able to be. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me up at night. But it shouldn’t be.
