So I have a rewarding career, an occasional romantic partner, a good relationship with my parents and a substantial income. Do I need to continue to develop from here? I am stagnant, but I have to decide for how long I want to stagnate?
The easiest answer to this question is: when I get bored.
I have no desire to start a family. I don’t want to be a father. I don’t want to have anybody else depend on me. I don’t have a long-term plan. And I don’t need anyone to take care of me as I age.
I am, of course, at the mercy of my changing mind and this changing world.
