Sorry, Lady Gaga, but I’m pretty sure millions of Americans wake up every morning with their careers telling them they don’t love them. I know I have definitely had one (or more) of those mornings. Not everyone’s a worldwide phenomenon, and it’s more than a little silly that the megastar made that huge assumption.
All silliness aside, does Gaga have a point?** I’m slowly creeping up to what is looking more and more like a crossroads between love and career, but does it have to be that way? What if love is a part of the dream? In an age where every day we’re told we can have it all if we put in the work, can we actually have it all? Or is choosing simply another part of growing up?
I completely disagree with her opinion that there aren’t any trade-offs in choosing career over love. What stumps me more is — I wasn’t aware that I had to choose. What do you think? Agree or disagree with Gaga? Answers to my dilemma?
