"I took a gap year. And a half. I was feeling a bit lost and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do."
"Do you know now?"
"The hope is that after 8 years, I’ll be made a partner. Until then, the job description basically states that I will be worked to death."
"So what’s your greatest fear about the next 8 years?"
"Turning 40 and not having a personal life. Finding out that I’ve gotten where I want to be, but there’s nobody in my life to give a shit about where I am or what I’ve done."

This is Phylicia’s letter to her 21 year old self. Very inspirational. Hope it resonates with you
Romantic involvement distracts you and can blind you to what’s really in front of you. And what really is in front of you? You are. You don’t even know yourself yet. You think you know and you want to assert that you do, now that you’re a certain age, but you don’t. What’s in front of you is a whole world of experiences beyond your imagination. Put yourself, and your growth and development, first. There are long-term repercussions to what you’re doing now. Everything you do, every thought you have, every word you say creates a memory that you will hold in your body. It’s imprinted on you and affects you in subtle ways—ways you are not always aware of. With that in mind, be very conscious and selective.
With high hopes for you,
