For those who are creative types, did your parents attempt to force into a "more stable, realistic


career or did they support and encourage your creative aspirations and goals?

    This is so true. This probably is one of the reasons why people are eventually fired from jobs- they were NEVER suited to them in the first place but caved into family pressure to get "the right" job i.e. to make a living.

    Good to have encouragement. I am too a creative type. I love to draw and write. My father wanted me to be a lawyer and he wanted me to attend graduate school. After college, I wanted to work but creatively.

    You are indeed a strong one and a survivor. God bless! Was your mother probably felt threatened by you and was jealous of your abilities which was why she constantly belittled you?
