A word of advice to this community, from my own experience: It’s better to follow your dreams despite any judgement cast against you, rather than to live up to someone else’s will for your life. Don’t let emotions, other people, fear, worry, or finances get in the way of your dreams. It’s never too late to do what YOU want to do. Dream big. Be unrealistic even. Fear, worry, emotions, and other people will inherently get in your way. Jump in and do it anyway. If finances are a worry, learn to budget your money. Life is a risk, life is scary. If you’re not scared of what’s about to happen next, you’re not living. Dream big, and follow those dreams. You won’t regret it. Anything is possible, but only if YOU are willing to do the work required to MAKE it possible. Good luck.
