Many people will give unsolicited advice or have an opinion on what you should do.
Some do not think through their opinion or advice before giving them. Some don't consider your preferences and opinions. Instead, they share their own experiences and usually from a place of good intention.
Don't listen to them.
What matters most is what you want to do with your life. Others do not live your life for you. Only you know what is best for you. Only you know what you love to do.
When you choose the thing you love most to do, don't ever apologise. Go all in. Be persistent and keep doing the things you love most. When others see that you love what you do, you become an inspiration.
Loving what you do becomes a gift to others. You show them that it is possible to do what you love. You show them that they don't need to heed the opinions and unsolicited advice of others. You show them that if you can do it, they can do it too.
Love what you do. Do what you love.
