Sometimes life can take you far away from your true self and you start doubting that thing you really love and would love to do doesn’t seem possible anymore. As you are growing up, you are learning and being influenced around people who don’t know YOU as well as you do. Their beliefs and opinion they may give to you along the way can totally affect your life and decisions, especially if they are negative ones.
You hear things like “Be realistic” “Be more academic” “You can’t make money from doing that” “Oh, everyone wants to be that.” But its your BIRTH right to express yourself. Everyone is the same, everyone is human. Each person has their own unique path to follow and you will get to where you want to be if you keep on persisting. It’s never ever ever too late.
