That was never the concern. Yes, you are going to be knocked off.
People and most of the times, your loved ones are going to try to fit you into their definition of right.
They are going to hate you, ridicule you and say the words which you do not have the time to even think about.
My invitation to you is: what is the most important thing for you? Living a life based on your standards and values, or trying to please everyone around you?
You are going to cross 90 years anyway? One is the difficult and scary road to your dreams. It will soothe you, give you all that you desire and make you love your life. The other one is the easy way out. Do what everyone tells you to do and lose yourself in the process.
Which one are you choosing today?
