Okay. So I know this woman and I get that she wants to help me make it through life, but she always ask me this question and when I tell her I want to be a writer, she tells me what she wants me to do. I’m sick of this. I hate being told what my future should be like when it’s MY future. Not her’s! I want to live my life the way I want to. I want to be happy. I want to experience the failures in life as well as the pleasures of life. I do understand that being a writer is hard and most don’t make it as a writer, but if I’m not writing, I’m not happy. My stories are part of me. They want to live. And telling me to go into business (where I definitely know I don’t belong because I took a class in business and wasn’t comfortable with it) is just unsettling.
If anyone else is having this problem, please feel free to stand up for what you believe in and don’t do what they want you to do. You’ll feel so much better afterwards.
