"Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign…to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin.”
"there are two kinds of folks: you load your gun like an ordinary man, or you load it like the devil."

He doesn’t know you, how you think, or what you can handle. I agree that you shouldn’t take in that poison. One day many people will be very glad you didn’t.
Yes, exactly. My friends who overheard the whole thing (because he called me out in the lab in front of 5 people I know and have class with…I mean really, what have I done to you? I don’t even know him and just met him today since he goes to the other campus), basically said what you said. He doesn’t know me, and what I can and cannot handle. No one truly knows what you can handle other than yourself and maybe your family. He didn’t help my mood since so much was going on at the time, but now I am just like wow, what a rude butthead. He tried to play the whole ‘I’m older and have been in the military’ card on me, which my friend who was listening and is in the airforce said is such BS. Everyone’s life experiences are different, and everyone needs to remember that when speaking to others.
You know what I hate
When people quiz you over your educational goals. Drill you until you feel like you are making a mistake and have no idea what you are getting into even though you have family in that field or friends and you hear about it. Sure its not your own personal exp but you hear everyones different experiences.
This older guy started asking me ‘have you seen people die?’ Technically…yes I have. I saw both my grandparents die and they both died in pain. It was hard. Very very hard to watch. But I never once said oh I have experience with so much death. He started saying how because I haven’t seen the gore and blood it will traumitize me and I will need a ‘shrink’. But you cannot tell me how I’ll feel when I haven’t seen it yet. My friend who heard everything going on told me after how it really depends on a person…and when its your job you enter that work frame of mind and you strive to help the people since that’s your first priority. I want to go into nursing because I /want/ to help people. I want to help people feel better. And sure its not always going to work out how you want, but that’s unfortunately how life is.
The guy really made me doubt myself after that and I hate that feeling. I’ve been so far enjoying the idea and working towards it. Yeah it’ll be a long and hard road, but as they say nothing in life comes easy.
If anyone ever makes you second guess your dreams - screw them. Just…tune them out or walk away. I should have but I didn’t. If you have dreams you follow them damnit. Do what makes you happy!
