What is wrong with me.........

Ok, I told the school the other day that I am not going, it was my decision. But now it is coming back.

I feel angry again and ..did I do the right thing?

I have a baby and I can't see myself studying telling him shhhhh all the time.

Can you ladies tell me how you managed to let something go?

It is just part of growing up. Life forks and you decide which road to take. It is a sacrifice but you gain also. Grieve then LET IT GO. You made the decision-you talked about it at length, you discussed it with your husband and then you did what you thought was best. Any choice invovles giving something up-that is why it is a choice.

Law school-self-fulfillment, life dream, debt, DH's loss of support, struggle with family issues

Non-law school-family support, easier finances (another child if you want one), get to stay home, do not have to juggle

You decided and you need to go on. It was a hard choice but it has been made. You can not live with should have, could have, would have...it will drive you crazy.
