Do other people get their dreams put-down?
(bottom of the world)
Recently, I've come a really good inspiring speaker. This person was poor and people have always told him that he was retarded and illiterate. I was really moved, because someone told him "don't you ever let someone's opinion of you, become your own and then your reality!"(he eventually reached his goal). I was so moved because I recently wanted to take up a PhD program and I need a scholarship. I've got an A- grade average, and I know I have a really good chance of getting a scholarship. But lately, I have been so low. I got sick, and so my dream was put on hold, but the key thing that put me so low, was people saying I'm wasting my time...or that this is ridiculous, why on earth would you like to leave such a good job?!?(it's just average) I'm usually a cheerful person, and I always ask questions no matter how stupid they may seem because I have a genuine interest in learning. I have come to doubt myself about people looking or listening to me and thinking that I am too stupid to study somewhere like Cambridge university. And so, my real question to people out there is that; Do you always experience people who put you down in your dreams to the point where you are almost giving up?
