It is not a “career or marriage” kind of a world anymore. Don’t let society feed you this false dichotomy. There are a thousand things to do in this world and a thousand things to be. Why chose, why limit your identity, why not embrace all the wonderful things life has to offer. Be careful though, when picking your partner, as this can easily be the single most important career decision of your life. You may have to give up a bit of yourself but you also get the best of someone else in return. A good man can be your biggest strength and suddenly you are not a one-woman show anymore, you are a team, there is someone to cheer you on, support you, push you when you doubt yourself and help pick up the pieces after a setback. You get a lot more from loving and being loved, anything else you are told is just a fallacy.
