Ok, so here's the scenario:
I am a 27 y/o woman with 3 children and a supportive husband. The youngest going off to full day kindergarten in the fall. FINALLY! Now it's my turn to fulfill my dreams. Going to nursing school
and becoming a nurse has been my dream for as long as I can remember.
Here's the deal. My mother (we are very close), is now saying "Well, maybe you will not just stop at nursing. Maybe you will go on to be a doctor!" I have told her over and over again that "I DON'T WANT TO BE A DOCTOR!" I have explained my passion and what I feel to be a "calling" on my life in nursing. Now that this is all coming together and I am getting ready for my journey, the one person that I have always been able to count on for support seems "support-less". (Is that even a word?!)
Has anyone ever had this problem with family or in the workplace that could shed some light on how to handle this situation?
Thanks so much for listening.
