Ive been out of school for a year and was lucky enough to find some independent contract work in the Behavioral Health field, which is on a client by client basis. My last client wrapped up earlier this month and being unemployed is very stressful especially with student loans blowing up my phone 6 times a day.
I have one family member that has been so obnoxious about pressuring me to go to Grad school. I plan to go, but Im just not ready yet.
No matter how much I tell him that Im not ready to go back, he keeps badgering me about going back to school, telling me how difficult its going to be if I wait AND this past week he had the audacity to tell me:
"Oh, well you can work at McDonalds then or this clothing store is hiring" saying that he was trying to give me a reality check.
If I was an ignorant person, I would have pointed out that he never recieved a degree and has spent his life relying on significant others for money.
Does anyone have any advice about rebuffing these comments or perhaps how they deal with pressure from people in their lives.
