I have moments when I wish my parent's where there for me more when I was youthful and full of energy. I picked a spouse like my parent's who is not capable of being there for me and we have never achieved any "goals" together. We survive on a daily basis. I walk around with my goals hiding in my soul. I occasionally share them with a girlfriend who cheers me.
Currently I'm working on a few big goals like starting a small business so I can contribute monetarily and since I chose a spouse that does not mentally and emotionally support me it can be heart breaking to dream of achieving goals. I know I'm not the only as there are other women out there that I've talk to that go through the same thing. Having you dreams thrown in your face with mean words is heart breaking. I know why this happens and that's another post yet it doesn't make it ok.
From my vantage point I feel like children whom are supported to make goals and then supported to achieve them will do that as adults. Unfortunately this doesn't make me feel better. My mind and heart tell me words can break my heart but not my soul. My heart will be sore for a couple of days but my soul patiently waits for the heart to heal.
