So, most people know me as the smart, over achiever, who was striving to climb the corporate ladder (and I was doing a great job of it).
I didn’t have a shitty childhood or horrible up bringing. But, my parents divorced when I was very young, which took a toll on my family.
I never realized how much of an impact it had on me until now.
All those years I grew up just trying to get my Dad’s approval. I went to school and worked jobs I never wanted to work just because I thought it would make him happy. I tried to pursue a life — my whole life — to please my Dad.
I can’t really say what led up to the start of my pursuit for “something bigger” something “more,” but I think it was a combination of things.
I assume everyone is raised to know right from wrong but some of the largest financial institutions in America didn’t seem to have the same values.
