Sometimes I get the sense that a career woman is wondering if I am smart enough to have a career. But, I can't truely say for sure if that is accurate or if I am making unfair assumptions. (Maybe she's just jealous.) I know that when I shift the conversation to a place of common ground, showing that we could discuss more than raising kids, I get along just fine with most everyone. Maybe it's the shift from "all about me" mentality that population finds difficult.
