Proving ‘them’ wrong!

Hey guys, there is no greater pleasure in life than proving the people that doubted you wrong…

When receiving so much doubt from the teachers at school… I always got told ‘you can’t do this’ and ‘you can’t do that’, ‘you will never be able to’… and so on! I really questioned myself after that, I thought that maybe they were right, what’s the point, I’m never going to become who I want to be…

How wrong was I? After overcoming everything I had been through, I was so determined to prove to everyone that has looked down on me and doubted me, wrong. I always loved writing in primary school, it was only when I faced the problems in high school, that I lost my love for it!

I was certain that it was journalism that I wanted to do and I wasn’t letting anything stand in my way this time! That’s when I plucked up the courage to enrol in an online feature writing course… I’m not going to lie, I was afraid of failing just in case it made me lose my way… again. I already knew so much from my constant research, I didn’t want to throw all the hard work I put in away. As the days went by I was learning so much more, I had literally read all the information I needed to know, in a week. All that was left was the assessment…

A 96% pass and a diploma later, I was actually so shocked! I was a step closer to achieving my goal. It was such a big life lesson for me, I can… I will… watch me!

  2. I’m so happy for you. Seriously, it’s a great feeling to prove that you can accomplish something. I’ve learned that the biggest lesson is to prove it to yourself. I thought for the longest time that I had to prove things to others and realized that the only person that truly matters in this equation is….ME.

    1. Thank you so much! It sure is, once you have proved it to yourself, you know you can do anything you put your mind too, despite what anyone else thinks!

  3. Wonderfully written. I love your courage for not giving up on your goal and yourself. Those who try to let you down should serve as your motivator as success is the best form of revenge. I’m also glad for your exam success. Keep up the good work and stay blessed.

  4. Wow! That was well expressed. I must say that it is a good feeling when you accomplish the things that you were told that you couldn’t do. And I must congratulate you for having the courage to go the extra miles! Well, now then, don’t stop working on improving yourself, because you owe it to no one but yourself, success! Good job! Keep on moving!

    1. Thank you so much! I was genuinely surprised myself, I don’t really have any ‘amazing’ tips, I am just 100% open and honest in what I write but I think maybe sharing a couple of my posts to all my social medias and having so many people including friends and family re share them, really got my posts out there. πŸ™‚x
