My husband just crushed my dreams, need advice please.
Through our relationship I have always said I want to go back to school to become an Occupational Therapist.I even looked into the program ag a local college just 2 months ago. Tonight he said that me going back to school was pointless because by time I graduated I would be unemployable because of my age. I would be close to 40 as I would start classes early. He says noone would hire me at such an old age with no experience:( I just busted into tears. I have always looooved helping people, and loved when I was a Chiropractic Therapist. I have such a deep desire to have a career not just a job at a gas station or a department store.
So my question is....Is he right?? Do I have unrealistic expectations? Will I not be hired at 40 with no experience?? I have been hired at everye job I have been interviewed for, as I am articulate, sweet natured, and attractive. (Also, I look 25 lol) I believe I have reasonable expectations for myself but maybe I am living in a daydream:( Of course, I will look into this further. I would just like some opinions and/or stories from personal experience.
