“When you can do anything, you aren’t simply looking to find land. It has to be the best land. What if you swim all that way, with every option in the world in your wake, and you find you’ve landed on something that isn’t the best? And you’re stuck there forever?

You won’t and you’re not.”

As a step-mother of a thirty-year old who is just FROZEN with this feeling, I so appreciate your piece. I think this thought process of not knowing which direction to swim is an epidemic in this age group right now. Thank you for this piece!
