Life is too short to stress over the past or school or your job or your family or your significant other, past or present. You just need to live each day as if it’s your last doing what it is you love, whether or not it makes you any money. Focus on what’s most important to you, and chase that god damn dream til the day you die. Reinvent yourself. Move across the country, across the world. Do whatever drastic action you need to in order to be happy at the end of the day. We only have this one life, and can’t waste it worrying about what our parents are going to think or our friends or society. Parents should never limit their children. New friends can always be made, and just fuck societies expectations.
Just do one thing. Do you. Fuck everything else.
