No spoilers, but at one period during her nightmare, she decides, as a mother of six, to get a real estate license during the housing crisis. No one in her world thinks this is a good idea or offers the least bit of encouragement, but she believes she can do it. She believes she can, some day, support herself.
Maybe this doesn’t seem revolutionary, but if you’ve ever been in such a nightmare (CN raises it hands, waves wildly) you know that to have faith in yourself during a crisis is no small thing.
So today’s Challenge — I want to know, what was your mighty moment? Different than our usual “Tell Me How You’re Mighty” challenge, I want to know what that kernel of self belief was.
When did you think you could do it? “Fuck what you say, I can!” support my family / move to another state / figure out small engine repair.
Also, do check out Venus’s story. It’s incredible. A real punch in the face to the RIC, IMO.
