Ultimately you have three choices:
Give up on your dreams and do what others want you to do. Only because it makes them feel comfortable that you will be just like them: afraid to go after what you want.
Give in to the weight and pressure that going after your dreams will bring. Yes it’s going to be tough and demanding. Yes you will fail a couple times. But it gives you another attempt to succeed.
Give it all you got and succeed beyond your wildest dreams. The road will be long and tough. But the belief that you will one day be successful is enough for me. Embrace the journey.
