This post is sponsored by Aspiration.
One of the more shocking aspects of growing up is understanding that you can never really escape some aspects of high school. We live in a culture that makes it easy to feel guilty or embarrassed about almost anything — wearing the wrong clothes, not going out enough, going out too much, eating the wrong foods, doing the wrong things with your money. Social media especially makes it feel like the world is a never-ending popularity contest, even if the categories we’re competing in are way different than what we cared about at 16.

In the below video, sponsored by Aspiration, Chelsea walks us through several different things that make us feel guilty in adulthood, and how to overcome the perceived judgement and feel confident in your choices.

And once and for all, there’s no need to equate the value of your career with how much you actually use your college degree. Scroll down to check out the full video!
