|Break Through The Shell! You Are Who You Are. by olujameson(m): 10:12am On Oct 07, 2016|
"What do you mean by you want to study law?
Do you know how many years you will spend in
the university? For Christ's sake, you are a lady,
not a man".
"Well mum, I have made up my mind. It is either
law or nothing else".
"You see my dear, it's not like I don't want you
to be a lawyer. But, you will soon grow to be a
woman. You'll need to get married and be under
a man. But with this dream of yours, do you
think you will get a husband? Lawyers have one

" Really? I might not get a husband? But I have

will stand in the way of getting a husband? A

playing numb, accepting to be pushed around by
what other people are saying.
You discover that you are very good at
handling sick or injured people, you daydream
about owning your own hospital one day, then
wake up! And pursue that dream. You are either
a nurse or a doctor. Don't wait for what others
will say. Of course, they will tell you that it
takes quiet a long time, real hard work, stress
and all of that to become a doctor. At this
stage, discouragement may set in. And believe
