There is a reason why you have made your decision … if you have it well thought out and you believe in what you are doing then it is the correct decision for you. It does not have to be the right decision for other people. Just remember you know something that others do not know. Don’t waste your time trying to explain yourself, justify what you are doing to others as the criticism will still continue. Focus you energies on yourself and the direction you are going.
Stay focused on your path and continue with passion.
