That awkward moment when everyone around you has done everything (TWICE) and you’re just standing there like *DERP*. Welcome to Late Blooming, population YOU. Yup, late blooming can seem like an isolated event. Here you are in your adolescence and your friends are all ahead and ‘advanced’, talking about things you thought you would only get to experience at 30! It’s such a bummer to see your peers (seemingly) so well rounded and mature and you’re still twiddling your thumbs in the corner because you haven’t been knighted with the fabled “magical mature baton”.
But what we realize in insight is that there is no baton, and maybe just wasn’t your time to mature yet. Everybody goes at a different pace for sure, but at the time life is in a vacuum so you want everything to happen to you now just like your friends. Some are lucky, but some are totally not. Today is one of those stories, with many hurdles and delays to “Bloomdom”. The Rock God of Podcasting Charles McFall shares his story of being a late bloomer and overcoming adversity and still being able to achieve what most late bloomers can only hope to accomplish. Strap into your seat, cause you’re in for a great show!
