There's never going to be another you. Let this really sink in.
If you want to live a certain way, then anything other than pursuit that is a waste of your time.
Living in a way to make others happy at the inconvenience of yourself is a waste of your time.
Your time is the most valuable resource that you have. It can never be bought, never be returned,
and it is limited with certainty. In the future there may be a time where you'd do anything for another hour, another minute, so do the most with the wealth of time that you have now.
It requires real confidence. It's not easy, by any means. Living honestly and in alignment with your ideals isn't a switch to be flipped, it's a journey. It will require you to be confident day after day, even when the people around you may want you to stay the same. Define and design your life, and understand that your path at times will go directly against the current.
One last thing to think about as you move forward: The advice that people give to you in attempt for you to conform should be questioned. Their paths may have not lead them to success, and even if their paths have, your success may not line up with what they see. Your vision is yours alone. Welcome advice but filter it out, and remain confident in what you wish to accomplish. Only you can live your dreams out.
Honest with no apology, be yourself entirely, show us your Realm.
