“I went to school at xxx”… “I had this internship to get yyy” … “I made this connection which helped me achieve zzz”

We often get wrapped up in the blanket statements that we know people are expecting as our answers. “I went to school at xxx”… “I had this internship to get yyy” … “I made this connection which helped me achieve zzz” // We spend time next to people and time on our phones, but don’t always go beneath the surface. — I’m exhausted of hearing about the concrete things people share when talking about how they got to where they are. I want to know the real shit. I want to know what pushes you over the edge, what’s tested your limits, what late night actions have surprised yourself to get you to be exactly where you are, to be YOU. I’m interested in how many times you’ve cried in the workplace, and kept going through your day. How often have you pulled all-nighters and spent so much $$$$ on coffee or energy drinks? You know, the ones we joke about but the nights we desperately need to pull through on or we crumble. Talk about the things you do to keep going, to maintain that outside perspective that you have it all held together. // That’s what’s not talked about enough, yet that’s exactly what defines us and what we’re capable of —

What are the things that only your small circle know, or maybe even no one at all? (p.s. Here is an example of my real life bun)
