Has anyone ever tried to steal your dreams or rain on your parade?
How have you handled it?

Oh yeah... I think most people have experienced this throughout their lives unfortunately. I remember one particular instance of an ex-friend who tried to copy the circumstances under which Steve and I met. I usually am a bit of a wimp and stand back and let it happen, but I have noticed that it usually backfires on the person so I try to trust karma to deal with that.

as much as i love and respect my mom - she rains on my parade quite a bit. anything that i mention that i want to do that is "outside of the box" (like, i want to enter the pillsbury bakeoff contest - i love to cook and make up new recipes, and if you win you get a million dollars! not like i have anything to lose LOL) she pretty much laughs and rolls her eyes and gives me the whole "keep dreaming" look.
i've just gotten to the point to where i don't tell her certain things that i'm doing that i know she will be negative about.

My sister likes to often. I just ignore it most of the time and know karma has a return of some form for her

Yeah, dh does at times. I have started point blank telling him HOW it is going to be on certain things (esp. one certain thing ). If he doesn't like it he knows where the door is and how to walk out of it. My Grandmother for another, so I don't discuss anything with her.
