You are the only one who has to live with each and every decision that you have made and will make. Who cares if you’re being judged for doing things your way and not the same as everyone else. If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you do it to? I sure hope not. You don’t have to live up to other people think you should do with your life. Instead you should go live your dreams and start trusing your gut through situations.
Thankfully my whole life I’ve had great supports abd a small portion of my family encouraging me to do what ever makes me happy and gets me closer to my goals. When I cut a lot of people out of my life at the beginning of the year the nay sayers were on the list along with the ones that say, ” if you do said thing I’ll be disappointed in you”. I’m sorry but I think I’m going to continue to live my way and given that I don’t fit your perfect family image isn’t my issue it’s yours. Life is too short to keep people around that are unsupportive of who you are as a person.
Please chase your dreams, if you have to work a minimum wage job to save up to peruse those dreams than do it. After you come up with a plan and you can do it financially go for it. It is much better to try and not male it in the end than to not even attempt and live a life full of regrets. I happen to have a lot of things I want to do kind of like a bucket list. I started crossing things off that list last year.
People when making a life decision always trust your guy if you get a bad or negative feeling about it it’s probably the wrong choice. You may not even have evidence of something being the wrong choice, but your body still tells you not to do it.
