This piece was published in the print version of Metro several weeks ago but wasn't posted online till recently. It echoes episode 33 of The Broad Experience, which asked what success really means. I open the piece by saying that the traditional American definition of success can be intimidating to some of us. If you don't have all the things you're 'meant' to have by a certain age, if you haven't achieved what you think you should, where does that leave you?
