There are a lot of well-meaning people out there with bad advice. There are things that come easy to you that come to others with difficulty or not at all. Don’t take that for granted.
If you have a vision for yourself, don’t be surprised when people around you can’t see it. The vision was only given to you. It’s not their vision, it’s yours.
Remember that your vision is not a gift that you have been given, but a gift for you to give. Following your vision and bringing it out of your head and into the world is an act of generosity.
