True Life Story: My Family Is Pressuring Me But I Have Other Please Advise Me

Hi listeners of Lively Stones!

There’s this matter I’m having, and it’s very confusing asf.
I have this uncle who resides in America, he does sends money and stuffs to we his family over here. Recently, I wrote my final exams, now preparing for NYSC. He called me as soon as he heard I was done with school.
He asked me what my plan was, and I told him I’m trying to get a job before I register for nysc and then I’ll redeploy to work in that same place. He then asked about my fashion business (I’m a fashion designer and I sew for mates in school). He said that’s a job on its own and that I can get a machine right there in my house even before getting a shop, so I can sew for people.
He asked me to list the machines and type of gen I’ll need so he can sponsor it for me.
Fast forward, he sent #500k for the equipment to buy for my fashion business, I really do have high dreams for this fashion business, I really do. And he made me promise that by that same period of time next year, I’ll provide the liquidity of what I’ve achieved Soo far with the capital.
Afterwards, my aunt advise me to keep the money in a fixed account, save up some during my nysc service year and then find more…for the purpose of traveling abroad. This is the bone of confusion!
I personally do not see anything special about people traveling abroad, I don’t know why I feel like that. I absolutely know they earn money and send to families over here and I know it’s one good option. But for reasons I can’t decipher, though, I don’t really fancy it.
Now I’m quite sure my mum and other family members are in support of my aunt. They really do not believe that a fashion designer can make it in Nigeria.
One problem is even if I finally decide to use the money for travel, how would I tell him, my uncle, that I want to keep the money he gave me to set up a business to save up for travel?
Is the best decision really to set up the business or to save up for travel?
Gosh, I’m soooo confused!

  1. My dear use that money for it purpose,get the sewing machines as instructed, December is coming,there are so many people already waiting for you to start sewing for them.

    Don’t allow anyone confuse you,be yourself and do what satisfies you, period.

    Peace be unto dear, please don’t get your uncle angry,don’t pursue your destiny helper away oooo, abroad ko abroad ni.

  2. Buy the sew machine for now.don’t use that money for any other things except for the purpose.and I’m happy you have passion for the fashion design.I wish to give you a business name right.if your name is Isaac I will advise you to name your fashion design as ISAAC’s stitches✂️✏️

  3. Dear Poster, I appreciate your confused state and confession here, and your desire to be enlightened

    You know what ? Your ideas to start and set up your fashion business here in Nigeria is Divine intuition. Believe me.

    How much is NYSC Allawee that you will save after eating and transport, to support your travels Abroad ?

    You can definitely rise up to greater level of achievements when you start from somewhere little here

    Please call your Uncle in US to talk to your parents to let them leave you alone to venture into what God has deposited in you, or he will asked you to return the money back to him

    Don’t be confused dear. God is mightily able to establish you and bless you here at home than going abroad.

    Pray very well, talk to your parents and convince them to allow you remain and start up here

    # Peace be with You

  5. Those who didn’t give you money want to tell you what to do with it, if you don’t use that money for its purpose it will go with the wind. And those people will be no where to be found when you need another money to set up.

    Buy what you need and start your fashion business, tell them you’ll gather the money to travel abroad from the business, So that they can rest.
