Girlfriend doesn't support me?


I've been dating this girl for the past 8 months and I've noticed that she isn't the most supportive of my endeavors? I feel like in the beginning of the relationship she was very supportive of whatever I told her that I was going to try and do, but as time went on, she's become more judgmental of what I'm doing.

I was talking to her a few nights ago about how I wanted to start making content based around our faith because I feel like this is something that I would be good at and it's something that I would enjoy. She told me that she didn't like the idea. She told me that she disagreed and that I would be better off just being a guy that's behind the camera. I think that she might have said this because she doesn't want me to become a popular person and for me to go hangout or be with someone else? I have no clue really.

Now today, I was talking to her about how my doctor is trying to start up a company and is interested in me working for him as a creative director. But she told me that the doctor must not know a lot of people and must not know that I've never done anything like this before. She was poking fun I guess but I feel like she's serious, especially considering the comments that she's made in the past. It really hurts to not have the person that you really like support you in what you want to do. Even if they aren't 100% down, they can at least come up with a way of telling you that you can do it if you try your hardest. A little bit of encouragement goes a long way. Now I don't want to tell her the things that I'm involved in because I don't want to have her 2 cents anymore. I think I'll just keep it to myself. If it's good, it's good. If it's not good, it's not good. After she made the little common about the doctor not knowing many people, I acted like I didn't hear her and asked for her to repeat herself and she said "nothing" in a cutesy voice but it really hurt to hear.

Has this ever happened to you? How would you/should I handle this situation?
