It is going to be scary hard. Do it anyway. Opinions of people matter the least in pursuit of the thing that you have been looking for.
The ones who give opinions are actually doing their best to keep the status quo alive because they are scared to be themselves in and to a world they have surrendered to.
The best thing you could do to yourself is to believe in yourself even when no one does.
Nothing ever has the power to beat a dedicated, disciplined and focussed mind, and wonderful work being shipped to the world.
As Ryan Holiday says it:
The only relationship between work and chatter is that one kills the other.
There is so much for you to learn and understand, there is so much for you to uncover about yourself, so much to feel life that when you do and keep doing that consistently, nothing other than magic happens.
