Some days I wake up thinking I may do well with a mentor, possibly someone in her 40’s or 50’s that has conquered her chosen line of work and is doing it big. Then i recognise that maybe i will be judgemental and looking for perfection in the said woman and I may be able to see her short comings maybe in her personal life, marriage, how she has raised her kids etc.
Then on another note am I too old to be mentored? Or should i just seek to make older friends who are willing to share their experiences candidly? Should mentoring be exclusive to younger people? Do I relly need a mentor?
I know the things I want to do as I have already had my purpose knocked into my brain..i have avoided many things for years and they keep resurfacing. I dont believe we have one purpose in life, we have multiple. I have spoken to God severally on my purposes and he has not removed any from my mind and neither have I been presented with any significant doubts as to following them.
Sometimes I also think i should probably go out and speak to younger females from age 14 to maybe 23, but I ask myself what do I have to tell them? I also think if I had been told certain things, I might have made some slightly different decisions. I had mentors when i was in my early 20s, some were helpful – some others made me feel underaccomplished and some simply left me confused. One is particular never thought any of my ideas were stupid…lol. Even when i thought they were whimsical at best..my husband has this same trait, so afer I married my husband i sort of drifted away from this particular mentor…
I keep asking myself do I need a mentor, the resounding answer becomes not really- i know the things i should be doing, do I always do them? Absolutely not. I don’t really need a mentor, in my mind I need funding. Lol. Should I be mentoring younger women? I am not exactly the epitome of a well behaved human being, I do what feels right to me at most given times.
Are you young and do you have a mentor? If not are you interested in mentoring or being mentored why? Is our culture truly open to mentoring or being mentored?
