Have you ever had the urge to update people who said you couldn't do something, on your progress?

I remember my band teacher told myself, and my friend that we would end up pregnant working at McDonalds (or some fast food place) because we wanted to quit band.

Had an old friend who told me my degree was stupid to major in, and that she'd grad before me. (but she didn't)

An ex told me I was childish and not a full adult because I still live at home with parents and have never moved out. Guess where he lives now? Also told me that I didn't need to go to school and shouldn't go every single day to class, and should instead be with him... Of course I did NOT listen and am about to graduate in 2 months.

Another girl told me that I (and Americans in general) am lazy, all because I told her that I wasn't going to school that summer, and was going to wait til fall.

I just feel like reaching out to the people. Just to let them know that I am well on track, doing what I said Id do, gonna achieve my dreams, and am unstoppable.
Good for you well done..why care what the others think your too good for that.

@Cutiepi23 I want them to know that not everyone is the same. Some people do what they say they will do.
@iamnikki Do it then but by the sound of them I doubt they would care. You know you did it thats what matters most. Im sure they will find out somehow.

You have achieved what they expected you couldn't for good reason. You are hard-working, dedicated, etc. People like that likely won't care and they will hear likely what you have accomplished. You should be proud of yourself. Just keep moving forward like you are. Your path of stars is enough for everyone who cares to see. Good job, Nikki.

It helps to ignore some and to surround yourself with positive people. You're doing the right things. They are the ones screwing up.

@Crazywaterspring I haven't seen these folk in years. But I'd like to friend request them, show them my degrees when I get them in May, with a nice picture maybe.

Good idea. Make sure you're all dolled up for that picture too. And have a BIG smile. They will respond with negativity. But that's their problem.

@Crazywaterspring Thank you, they probably will.
