Living at home after the age of 18 used to be an unthinkable shame. Guys jumped into manufacturing jobs straight out of highschool, women married young and parents were left at home to go about their lives.
Thankfully, times have changed. Domestic norms have relaxed, and assembly jobs are competing with the Dodo for the most boring thing in non-existence.
Today, if you’re under 30, and out of the nest, you’ve got it going on.

Whether you want to be a writer, a teacher, a speaker, or an entrepreneur, you’ll struggle through a period of not actually being that thing while trying to fulfill the expectations of your role. It’s gut wrenching. It’s embarrassing. It’s totally exposed. And it’s absolutely necessary on your road to self improvement.
But it doesn’t have to last forever.
Ugh. You know the feeling: the mounting dread, the creeping anxiety, the little voice in your head that scoffs, that says you can’t. Ugh… Here comes another weight loss promise.
Maybe you’ve broken one before. Maybe you’ve broken thirty. But you’re back at the starting line, again, and you’re here because you know this is the step you need to take for the life you want to live.
