So many people say, “I wish that I could do that.”
It surprises me, because then I think, “Well why can’t you?”
But I have to realign myself in their context, their priorities.
Their financial situation
Their desire to be close to home, spend time with the kids, etc.
The fact that working hard on the career is important now
Or what I can see clearly for many is fear.
And that’s what I interpret when they start a sentence with “I wish that…”
Because I know how it’s like to have fear.
