I have a lot of support from friends and family but every now and then I am approched by an a friend of a friend, total stranger or just someone completely judgmental. Last night was the last straw, I got attacked by a friend's sister[never met or talked to the woman in my life] online about my engagment and pregnancy. I've never heard such rude words. She is getting amrried and I started talking about my wedding with her wedding planner sister[my friend] and she blew up on me, starting judging and putting down my relationship my my pregnancy for NO reason. I had never said anything director towards or or about her negative. My fiance's mother is upset about the baby. He talked ot her about marrying me in November and she was pretty clear with saying that was a bad idea, insisting that her answer was because of or age, not because of me, which i do believe.. sorta. i'm just really upset about people judging my decisions because im young. my fiance is 21. i turn 21 in may. our baby isn't sue until september. people think that im completely clueless on life because im only 20. im not saying i know everything in the world, i couldn't know everything even if i lived my whole like, im just saying that why are people so inclined to push their opinions on me? do they really think i'll care? lol do they really think they'll be that one person that changes my mind and saves me from making a big mistake? and what do i tell these people? i've tried the, "please keep your opinion to yourself, thank you." doesn't work, that woman tore me down last night because I had said that.. i mean, really.. these people are the ones acting like children.
please, if you're one of these people who are just going to tell me that they are right and i am young, save your argument. that's your O-P-I-N-I-O-N. opinion = the way YOU view somthing. not ME. Plus, it's little hard to turn back now, in my second trimester and my wedding is in two weeks.
THANK YOU to everyone who responds with some ideas on how to deal with these people or tak to them.
