Discouragement Happens When Those You Love Tell You To Quit on Your Dreams

One of the worst feelings to ever have is the feeling of discouragement. I have been a writer for almost a decade and still don’t make enough money with writing alone to support myself. Friends, family members and strangers tell me it’s not going to ever be enough to support you so just get a regular job. It sucks hearing those words because my dream is to make my passion for writing a career that does earn a decent income so I can pay for the essential of living life comfortably. I don’t want a fancy life though, I want a simple life. Unfortunately we need money to pay bills, buy food and purchase medicinal things when necessary. Hopefully if I keep believing in myself and that God will help me succeed at this than things in life will get better and my dreams will come true. However, it’s hard to keep believing when everyone around you is saying, “Quit! Quit! Quit!. All I want to do is just be me and do what I love even if I am falling behind. I know I maybe falling behind now, but hopefully someday I will fall ahead and things will be good again. All I have to do is just keep praying and believing in myself and in God. Don’t ever let those around you tell you to quit on your dreams.

Sometimes, people around us tell us to quit because they can't stand to see us happy. I think we should follow our heart and make the right choices in our life.

It is sad when people discourage me from writing. My dream is to be able to write for a living.
