I Want To Become An Introvert

I have been doing this for some time now, I think about what I want to do within a year and go for it, then I have the five year plan, which did bypass me before of working two jobs, so I had to forgetaboutme. But the ten year plan was/IS to find another well paying job/ business, more brain power less physical power. Meaning no more caregiver because its just hard on the body and mind. No more rentals, they have to be maintained and with age that gets harder and harder. Although I know a couple that still had them when they died at the ages in the nineties. When I make a suggestion of what I would like to do, as in start a new business, my family shoots it down like I am being ridiculous. So last night I was telling Tony I have several deliveries coming and he asked what they were, I got an eye roll and I asked "why does everyone always ignore what I want? I want to try something new now, if it does not work it was worth marking off the list, go to something else and get established before the last minute!" Later he said he didnt mean to shoot down my ideas. Today in the car on the way back home, out of no where Tony said " You know you have land that can be cleared and a couple trailers be put in but you`ll have to have septic put in." On this day I wonder if I am ever heard. I have been trying for 2 years to get that land cleared and small homes put on them, I am not crazy about trailers but if they are cheap enough I would do those. Although I don`t want to always be a landlady I am now, I have asked and asked another cousin to help clear it and I pay him, nothing yet. So for now I am still the same me, doing the same jobs but I will build that other dream, nourish it even of it uses all the space in my office. I will not give up, when I get started I will share and with photos. Excuse the .... I don`t know what to call this discussion. How was your day?

I would like to be an in between. I don't like being an introvert, but I couldn't handle what you do. I volunteer to be an in between. You do an excellent job, although you have way too much stress. You are too smart for people to shoot you down.

They may be scared if I make a go at the other and succeed.

today my gf sent me on a mission to toys r us to see if theres anything to be bought for her class room next year, i made the mistake of sending her pics of stuff. trailers or home style trailers are a great investment, if it can be done. i used to weld those things. adding things to it is almost like sticking two legos together. you may as well clear it and turn it into a park or softball field.

It's so important for the soul to follow your dreams. Do what you want to do. At this stage of the game you don't need the opinion of others.

It is a lot of responsibility owning all of that property and those houses. I wouldn't want that kind of stress.

@NJChicaa Easier said that done, most people do not have credit anymore and cannot take out a loan, so I am stuck with them for 10 years or more, if they pay it off, if not I am stuck with a house that has been abused.

My day has been okay, although less successful in some areas than I'd like. We've been super tight on money this month (new glasses for kids, doctor co-pays, etc., plus the kids are home all day now) and my oldest daughter's college has a food bank on Wednesdays, so I told her to go ahead and pick up some things this week. She went there this morning, armed with insulated bags and ice packs, but they weren't there today after all (I wonder if they're off for the summer). Strike one! Went to a meetup at a local park with the other half and the little boys for the youngest boy's preschool families (he starts in the fall, so this is a good way for the new families to get acquainted) and went to the library afterward for their free summer lunch program. Unfortunately, even though we got there 10 minutes after they started, they had already run out of all the meal options except for a Southwest vegetarian wrap that the boys weren't going to eat... so we just went home. Strike two! Right now I feel so sleepy, despite having consumed a ton of coffee today.

@andriaperry Likely so, and even WIC. I've been dragging my feet on that because I hate dealing with the county offices.

You really shouldn't give up on you. You do have needs and you should be heard.

Hi Andria. Why not do what you want to do and dont listen to what others say? That is one wat to be an introvert (I guess .

Do not listen to the others, follow your dreams until you are young enough to enjoy what you want to do.

I am the same, but I shut down the ideas in my head before I say them out loud. And I am an introvert, sometimes it's not fun at all. Just give yourself some more love and appreciation and things will change. That's an advice I would give to myself too.

You know, it sounds mean. But the truth is MOST people will shoot down anyone's idea of starting a business, accomplishing something, doing something risky...whatever. The mean part? There is a REASON there is a 1% and a 99%. That 99% is going to do everything to discourage anyone from trying to be in the 1%, or top 5% or whatever. That's why people choose to knock others down. It makes them feel better about themselves for not trying.
