“Even when I am writing this blog today, I’m surprised to find my memories of these painful moments to be no longer hurtful. You see, pain passes as you change.”Pearl Li —
I did not come from a supportive or loving environment growing up. Taking a step that deviated from a mainstream corporate career in technology was considered a betrayal by many in my circle at the time. The ones that are closest to me like family members, friends, and trusted advisors have all at some point thought I was “crazy” to want to manage my own money and grow it through trading/investing. It’s like how the common man at one time in history had the desire to read the bible for him/herself and it was immediately condoned as heresy.
So, that was my community when I started this journey. Not only they did not have any word of encouragement, but they were also destructive to my emotional well-being to learn something new. Yet, I wanted to change.
I wanted it so bad and I no longer cared about these people that existed in my life only to cause me pain. They are not going to where I’m going, so I had to let them be. To avoid further conflict, ridicule and judgment, for 3 years, I did not tell too many people what I was doing. Especially, when I know they are not the supportive type.
Even when I am writing this blog today, I’m surprised to find my memories of these painful moments to be no longer hurtful. You see, pain passes as you change. Yes, I still remember the pain, but they no longer have power over me, because I am at a different place now.
At moments when I really have no idea what my future looks like, Tim Justice, my mentor told me, “Just keep trading, keep learning, every aspect of your life will change!” I remember that from this day and I’m here to pass this onto our community.
Regardless of where you are in life, how you grew up and what are your current difficulties, don’t give up on the one thing that can trigger the domino effect to improve every aspect of your life, even when you don’t feel it and your body is aching, you have to force the change upon yourself to show up to class, do the work, follow what your mentor says. Day by day, a new environment will emerge to support you.
Stayed tuned for .“My Community is My Success Part 2: Let the Momentum Carry You”.
