      Small-breasted = possible psychological problems. Large-breasted = possible psychological problems, scads of practical problems (clothes shopping, bra affordability, exercise restrictions), plus a myriad of physical problems that can include (but are certainly not limited to): back, neck, and shoulder pain, poor posture (often ending, for elderly women, with a super-attractive huchback), shoulder grooving (a great thing where your bra straps, over time, actually create canyons in your collarbone), and frequent fungal and bacterial infections (because those folds get super sweaty). All of those things can add up to a much bigger problem than just insecurity.

      My family had very little money when my dad applied for his first overseas assignment. My best friend’s family moved overseas asalast resort when it looked like the only way her dad could possibly continue in his job. Many friends and former classmates had parents who left their home country to escape lack of opportunity. The bulk ofaTCK’s experience with other cultures does not come from traveling for pleasure, which DOES cost money. It comes fromarelocation that’s generally financed by the TCK’s father’s or mother’s employer, not by their personal wealth. Iunderstand that traveling the world does takealot of money; I’m not sure how it’s not humble to point out that beingaTCK doesn’t always mean that you’re also financially wealthy. Rich in experience, absolutely, and privileged to have seen so much of the world, beyondadoubt. But just plain rich? Considerably less often than you’d think.

      Newsflash: lots of TCK’s are not, in fact, rich, and neither are their parents. Some are military brats, and most of the rest of us hadafather or mother who tookachance and applied foraprofessional position outside of their home country. We’re the children of engineers, teachers, and foreign service members, NOT the children of billionaire business moguls and celebrities, and in most cases, much of our existence overseas was financed by our parent’s employers, because many companies recognize that moving your entire family toastrange country isabig risk, and they compensate accordingly. So maybe instead of being bitter, you should look into what fields haveahigh demand for expatriate employees, and tailor your career accordingly.
