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?
