Turn criticism into a challenge.

One morning while having breakfast she excitedly told him about her dream.. Something she wanted to do, something she aspired to become…

But to her surprise he ridiculed her … And rudely said that she would never be able to do the hard work required for achieving that heights in life and she should rather get back to her daily routine, the place where she belongs..

Has anyone ever told you in life that you are good for nothing? Or that you won’t be able to do a particular work? Has anyone ever made fun of you for having big dreams in life?

What was your reaction in that situation? Was that person strong enough to demotivate you and come between you and your dreams? Or were you confident enough in your capabilities to prove that person wrong and to live the life you had imagined…

P.s. Never give anyone the right to make you feel less about yourself. You are worth much more. Just believe in yourself and follow your dreams. Convert all the negativity into positive criticism and keep working.

  2. That was very well written and YES I agree entirely that we can do anything we want in life but we have to take that first step into the unknown with open minds and hearts. and maybe earmuffs LOL to not hear the words or comments others may have about our dreams.

  3. I had a lot of my dreams belittled as a kid, and most of the belittling came from my mother. Granted, she was probably just being realistic, but there was probably a better way of doing it.

    Along those lines also were my church friends in my late 20s; when I’d mention that I didn’t like being single and I wanted to meet someone, they would tell me that God didn’t want me dating right now, and then they’d go home and screw their girlfriends whom they weren’t married to.

    On the positive side, there was one clear time when someone else’s lack of support motivated me: specifically, I’m typing this on a spite computer. I spent most of 2011 in a terrible long-distance relationship with someone who was way too full of herself. I told her about wanting to build a computer, because I thought it would be a useful experience, and because if anything broke or needed upgrading, I would know exactly what was inside it. She had built computers before, and she told me to wait until she could come to visit so we could work on it together, because, as she said, “when something goes wrong, AND IT WILL, I can help you figure it out because I know what I’m doing.” I didn’t get around to building the computer until five months after we broke up, but after hours of fiddling, I turned on the computer, and it worked on the first try. That was probably the only time I wished I had stayed in touch with her, so I could rub it in her face that my computer worked and she didn’t believe me. Probably best that I didn’t, though.

    1. Don’t ever let anyone ever belittle you. You are capable of achieving all that you dream of. Just make plans and start working towards your goals. And I’m really touched by your bad past. I would just say one thing that I’ve learned from all the tough times in life : I’m strong and I am just worth everything. I just have to have the belief in myself.. Blessings and love to you โค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

      1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

        I actually realized once I started college that some of my unrealistic dreams weren’t really what I wanted, and although it was a little uncertain for a while, I’m still doing the thing that I had planned to do with my life at the time I graduated. As for whether or not I want to be single, after spending almost my entire life single with a couple of really bad relationships mixed in there, I’m still trying to figure out what I want at this point. This year I’ve mostly just been trying to survive a mountain of adult responsibilities.

  4. I agree with you… we shouldn’t give anyone the right to belittle us. Self worth cannot be verified by others. We are worthy because we say it so. We should ignore all the people who criticize us or don’t believe in us. The only person who needs to believe in our capabilities and dreams is we ourselves. Other than ours, no one else’s point of view matters ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. I had read somewhere a while ago.. *we are criticized only when our stars are shining* and I believe this saying too much.. We should never let someone belittle us and make fun of our dreams like the man did..
      Thankyou for reading. Blessings and love โค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ
