I had the courage to make choices in spite of the disapproval of others

Keywords: {0}

I worked my way through graduate school, taught in the inner city for seven consecutive years, paid my own bills (car payment, car insurance, utilities, rent, etc.). I wrote and recorded my own folk album, and I had at least three romantic relationships. I proposed to a man I loved and was rejected by him and my best friend, I was accused of intentionally deceiving and “stealing” a man because he was interested in me and not my friend; again, I was rejected. My family was both antagonistic and unsupportive of me. Still I “warrior-ed” on. I did not need the approval of these people to be the person I WANT TO BE. I let it go.
