Bride's Witching Hour Has Family Bothered, Bewildered

DEAR ABBY: I am a 24-year-old male who is very confused. For the past year, I've been attending business school in El Paso, Texas. However, I'm thinking about dropping out and enrolling in truck-driving school. Becoming a truck driver has always been my dream, but my family doesn't give me the emotional support I need. When I've tried to talk to them about it, they don't listen.

What should I do, Abby? Go for my dreams or do what my family wants me to do? -- TORN IN TEXAS

DEAR TORN: Why not do both? Finish business school and then become a truck driver. You might want to own a trucking company one day -- and a business education would come in very handy.
