“What do you want to be?”

Is a question I was asked many times during my childhood. 

Relations at parties wanting to know what I was going to be when I grew up…

Career advisors and teachers wanting to know to give me guidance in studies…
But I don’t ever recall being asked the question…
“Who do you want to be?”
And I think that’s more important.
At 36 years old I’m only now really thinking about that.
