Powerful! I am 33, soon to be 34, and I am in the same situation. My childhood was identical -- in a way -- to yours. Majority of tasks were completed for me by my mother (she was/is a single parent). I had hobbies, but never truly focused enough to progress, in such, turning it into a future prospect. I didn't knuckle down in school either, therefore, setting myself up for a fight with myself. Now, I am battling to bring about that change. Thank you for this brilliant relatable read.
