Wherever you go, there will be naysayers. Everyone encounters them. So, figuring out what to do with them is better time spent than trying to avoid them. They’ll come in surprising forms anyway. They might be your parents, a friend, a teacher, a boss, or somebody you look up to.
When you feel deep in your bones that you know what you’re made to do, find someone you trust, who genuinely likes you, and has your best interest in mind and run it by them. You’ll likely get a response like “of course that’s what you should be doing, I’m not the least bit surprised.” Not sure who these people are? They’re the ones who were honest when you asked them about that one person you were dating, they’re there through all the highs and lows, you know you can tell them anything without being judged all the while they’ll be honest with you.
And then as you start sharing it with others, you’re going to encounter people who might not be excited for you.
