I am motivated by negativity from those closest to me. My fiance and his mother say, "you keep saying that you are going to do something and yet it doesn't get done." One example is gaining employment. I knew that I had a certain government job by December of last year, but was not actually called to start working until just recently. I am to start on June 1. I did not give up, even though they give up on me.
They try to do everything they can to sabotage me, whether it be school or writing, and although I hate to miss the deadlines, I still complete my stories anyway. I may be able to use them somewhere else. The more someone tries to control me to keep me from doing what I want, the more I push back until I have accomplished what I want to!
