1. Your dream is yours, not theirs.
Some people don’t understand you vision even when you explain it to them. Most times they’re not educated on the career you’re pursuing anyway. Most of them once had a dream of their own that was not fulfilled or they just gave up on it. Most people that are living out their dreams understand the struggle and commitment it takes to make it. Your experiences are uniquely your own.
