Sometimes People are Hurtful

Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
Circa 2004

This is definitely something that I need to forget and I work every day on trying to forget it.  It is something that my husband helps me to over come.

So when I was in college I was working on an Agriculture Education degree.  At the time I was dating a guy.  Somewhere along the way I was told about job making 200,000/year.  In another instance I was told about a gal who had a job in Kansas City working for a large Agriculture Business company who was making 70,000+/year.  Her husband was a full time farmer and she only had to drive 30-45 minutes to get into the city for her job.  (I may insert the 70K job, my Agriculture Marketing teacher was trying to convince me to stay in school for an extra year and graduate with a double major in Agriculture Education & Agriculture Business.)

So one day I was referring to these two different jobs, these two different instances saying that I would make it big someday doing something.  His mother looked at me and said that I would never make that type of money.

Now, if you would have known me at the time, to me that issued a challenge.  I hated the word no or can't or you can't especially.  I would work extremely hard to prove you wrong.

So this was a couple years into dating this guy.  Now luckily I have that guy out of my life and I have my extremely supportive husband in my life who stands behind me and has all the faith in the world that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to.  But here lately I've had a few road blocks thrown at me and I'll tell you, those words ring in my ears/head every now and then.  He knows it too which he hates that they ever told me that, but he believes in me 100% and we're working together to overcome that thought in my head and just push it out all together!

  2. Keep pushing. Your a few years younger than me and my husband is 2 years younger than me but he always wants us to be where he sees us in life now. I keep trying to get him to have patience and realise we are young & we WILL get there eventually. No if's and's or but's about it. I am sure the same thing is true for you, you have to keep reminding yourself how far you have already come since that time!!!
