I wanted to become a lawyer

A defense attorney, maybe public defender. I was told I needed a Bachelor’s in order to get into law school, went for a Bachelor’s in English, didn’t finish my fourth year because of mental illness :frowning: Worked lots of grunt jobs and then eventually went on disability when things got bad for me.

Well it’s actually extremely common (more common than people will see and admit to) and highly damaging and takes serious self reflection to realize the solution and deprogram from destructive tendencies.

It’s unfortunate because it isn’t something many people will acknowledge in society at large. It sounds like something ‘bad’ to suggest our parents didn’t really love us and most will defend dysfunction without a second thought.

I know because I have a tendency to want to do that too and have.

Edit: this is one of those things that makes me think: oh boy, I better be careful about setting off some fires.
