It seems like consumerism and the constant need to have more and more is everywhere I look. It’s on TV, on social media, and in the stores (Black Friday, I’m looking at you). So, my question is, why the excess?
Do you know how you ruin a child’s life? You look at something they wrote and say, “This is pretty good. You should become a writer.” Please don’t do that, rather let the poor thing stick to realistic goals like becoming an accountant or lawyer. Why do I say so? Because I can testify to it. There are many reasons why I love writing, but it can be a burden as well.
