Your dreams, the way you want to spend your time, what lights you up, your quirks ... and that's ok.
We are all unique.
Most people will support and champion what you want but a handful will simply judge you.
You don't need to spend your time, energy and focus trying to change their mind. It's much easier if you just show 'them'
So many times in my life I have been greeted by an eye roll or a sniggery 'oh yeah right' ... as I'm sure you have. But as you may know; people quickly 'get involved' once they get it/ need something right now.
So just keep looking forward, pal X
