Is it just me who feels that, as a poor person, people are very quick to talk you down from your goals and aspirations? It doesn’t seem to be as a kind hearted act to help you avoid being crushed when things don’t pan out. It feels more like they really don’t have faith that you could possibly achieve anything beyond the reach of poverty. Even when they are supposed to be your support people.

Is it just me that feels that?

Maybe those small minds are right. Who knows? I just know that if you listen to them and believe them, poverty is going to be an even darker place without that thing you’re dreaming of.
