Jabbe Posted August 17, 2008 Share Posted August 17, 2008 Hi everyone. I feel stuck at the moment. I'm trapped into a job that I don't want to work and married living with my parents after my wife got out of the military prematurely purposely. It was her dream to travel and see the world but the price it came with was too much for her. I supported her decision in getting out because I didn't want her trapped into it. I told her things would be terrible if she did quit and they are worse. Now, I have an opportunity to pursue a dream I've worked over 7yrs for, and have a huge opportunity to make sure we never have financial troubles as long as we live. I'm signed to and have released on 3 different labels that fans of my genre would be extremely familiar with. My boss is offering me an opportunity to meet celebrities and legends along with becoming a superstar DJ. It would involve me moving away for a short period of time and sending money to my wife. The only problem is that my wife is fighting me on this. I gave up my life just to be with her and she quit on me putting us into this situation. Here I am with a shot at my dream and she's afraid for me to take it. We don't really have much to lose. Succeed or fail the situation would be the same. We both will have to work a total of 4 jobs to survive. I stood by her side and supported her short military career, but she won't support my aspirations in the music industry. I don't think this is fair to me and feel like this will decide whether marriage was a mistake or not if my own spouse doesn't believe in me. I refuse to be one of those people who never takes a chance on their dream only to watch it slip away. I'm way too ambitious. Final note: I have records that have sold out worldwide and respect from well known artists specific to my genre. (I'll be more specific in PM's). I know exactly what I am doing and am truly blessed to be where I am at the age of 22. This is not a pipe dream! It's reality! What do you think? Would you take a shot at your dream if you know you could make it or settle and try to pay bills until you die? Also, my wife gives me ZERO emotional support. She keeps drilling reality into me when I already know what we're facing. Honestly, she's not compassionate for me at all. She has no aspirations... All comments welcomed. This is an urgent matter.
