Good one! Mine is finding who I was really meant to be.
That’s very important! What do you do to find that?
Well, I don’t have much from my direct family, but some aunts and uncles who read my blog said I would never get more than 50 followers. Now I have 63, so yay!
Well, it’s easy for them to look sharp and criticize when they do nothing 🙂
Not something they said I couldn’t as in wasn’t able to, but I did take a vastly different path in life than they had imagined for me. Now that I think of it though, my mother said when abandoning me at age 19 that I would never find anyone else because I have no social skills. Well, not even 18 months later, I met my now husband.
Congratulations! People say shit like that so they can feel better with and about themselves. As you experienced, they cannot predict the future 🙂
Thanks so much. Yes, I agree with you.
Actually publishing the ‘type of sick stories’ that I love to write. (their words)
Not nice of them, but no one can decide for us what we can or cannot do!
Not nice at all, but at least my Dad and I can discuss plots, etc…he loves mysteries.
They always think I’m weak and can’t do any moderately difficult job. Now I’m a security.

Wow, that’s a big one! What did they say about that?
Now they’re always warning me to be careful.
When I came out as an atheist to my religious father, he was furious. At the end of an awful conversation, he told me (at 19 years old), that I was ruining my entire life and he was going to wait for the inevitable time when I lost everything I worked for, and then he’d pick up the pieces.
I moved out the year after that, and 4 years later I saved him from suicide and was his only friend when his entire life fell apart. I picked up the pieces.
The irony was not lost on me.
What a story! Well, we can consider religion as a tool. If we use it properly, it helps us. But we can do great things without it. It depends on people’s views about it.
Definitely! Many of my friends and family are religious, and some are not. It all depends on the interpretation of various teachings. There are many lovely people in the world, regardless of religious beliefs!
They told me I couldn’t stop crying, so I stopped feeling
Would you say that now you have no feelings?
I wish I could
They told me my worth was only in how far up the social ladder I climbed (being thin, havings tons of money, being part of the “in” crowd). I’m about as far from that as possible, and I’m so much happier and safer than I ever felt with that mandate. Maybe I’ll never set foot in the such and so country club again – and I really couldn’t care less. I have a good life without being tortured by goals that don’t fit ME.
Yeah… sometimes people forget that we’re different and they think that everybody should be the way they are…
