Its not right that he makes you feel this way. If you *really want to be a Geologist, then go for your dream, and don’t let him stand in your way.

I should listen to my own advice though, as I am in a similar situation.

You can be whatever the hell you want to be, ESPECIALLY if this man hasn’t made any sort of committment to you.

And a man that loves you, while he may not always agree with you, he will support your decisions that make you happy (as long as they are not destructive to your health and well being).

You need to consider if you really want to be with a man that undermines your choices and questions make your ability to make adult decisions.

@Rananteriel:  Follow your dream! I had an extremely difficult time with math and now I’m a senior accountant! You can do it. It sounds like your SO is insecure and bringing you down. Stay strong and be whatever you want to be.

You need to do what makes you happy especially in your career. If you don’t, this will haunt you back sooner or later and I’ve seen people go through this. If you love what you do, it will not feel so much like work..just a little bit 🙂

As for your SO, yes I agree that he should support you but at the same time, try to find out where this negative behavior is coming from. Is there anything going on with his life that’s bringing him down? Talk to him about how you feel about his behavior when you are in a better mood. And give him the benefit of an explanation from his end. Then see how things go from there.

It sounds like he isn’t being supportive of you and doesn’t understand where you are coming from.  That is tought to deal with, have you told him how you feel?

Go ahead and become a geologist! You’ll be happy and it’ll show in the relationship, if you don’t follow your dream, you’ll be miserable and both of you won’t be happy. Make yourself happy first…

About the math issue, a little history on me if you care to read… I used to hate math in school and highschool, I failed math in grade 9 and got 70% in summer school. (studying for 4 weeks was a lot easier than the whole school year!) But the rest of the years I got between 50-55 % WHY? Because I hated it. didn’t think it would matter if I knew algebra or divide 1000 into 63 or 63 into 1000 who cares about that, was my attitude… My mom even hired a tutor to come into my home to teach me but nothing worked. LOL

After highschool and a baby I thought hey, I need a calculator to do the simplest math additions and substractions and multiplications that everyone else can do in their heads! That’s sad. So I made up my mind and bought a whole bunch of children’s math books and did them and I wrote out the multiplications table and learned it by heart! After that, I knew that I could set my mind to whatever I wanted to do in life.
