Certain things are expected of us, it seems. We’re supposed to go to college, get a good job, get a promotion, buy a house, get married, and have and raise kids, all the while maintaining a respectable appearance, a good circle of friends, and a career. And though not everyone conforms to this strangely unappealing “norm” that someone once created, the pressure still falls upon us to have/do all of these things. You might not realise it, but not fitting into these molds could be subconsciously stressing the hell out of you.
