This always makes me want to say, again and again . . . first, the psychic could always be wrong; second, things change. We all have free will. There may have been a strong trajectory for that direction at the time of the reading, but there is no reason the person hadn't changed their mind, their plans and thereby rendered that piece of the reading no longer viable or accurate; third, trust yourself first.
If something does not sit right with you, ignore it. It may be that the psychic is wrong, or possibly the timing on the information is not appropriate -- it could be any number of reasons that the information does not resonate with you. If it doesn't resonate, simply forget about it.
Whatever your lessons are in life, they will be back, and the timing for you to advance in those areas and learn will be appropriate, and at that point things will make sense to you.
The biggest reason I am writing this is because sometimes psychics predict the time a person will die, which is utterly ridiculous mainly because free will operates at all times.
I had a client in her eighties who was worried about what a psychic said to her 40 years ago!
Don't let a psychic or anyone determine your life! Even if you get information along these lines, use it to change things, not make it a reality. Defy them! You have free will. You can change things. You can change your future. Nothing is fated. Nothing is written in stone. Things are flexible.
Always choose the best possible direction for your life. Accept the most positive information; ignore the negative information.
