Agree. We all do shit we don’t like out of necessity. It’s part of life — and yeah it makes for great creative material :) It also builds resilience, empathy, and strength.

This is a great piece Jessica —at some point, all of us wish we could just follow our passions. Without really thinking it through. Without being happy with what we have. And what we need to do to get by — and appreciating that. You’ve shared a blunt, honest, and much-needed dose of reality I wish I had read about many years ago. But I don’t regret figuring out the hard way :) Cheers Jessica! :)
