We are not limited to one career, lifestyle, or identity. Humans are complex creatures and our lives become richer the more we invest in our various passions. What we love to do and what we went to school for may be two very different things. We may never shape our careers around what we’re passionate about, nor are we required to even make a profit off of our hobbies. The point is to allow ourselves to be multifaceted and not be pigeonholed. If we limit our whole identities to one thing, we’re at its total mercy should it leave us. We could lose our jobs, get broken up with, or find ourselves injured or sick and be unable to fulfill the roles we once did. When we allow ourselves more than one dimension, we have the hard work and skill set to fall back on if Plan A falls through.
