The truth about life is that you're going to have friends, teachers, family, parents, lovers and many more people always wanting you to be someone you're not. It's really easy to fall into the trap and to live for others. This doesn't mean don't take care of your friends, family, parents, lovers etc but your communication that you won't let their opinions change your happiness and what you want from life is really powerful. I failed high school, I was a trouble maker getting suspended, I was the "failure" in other parents eyes, I was blamed to be the ring leader even though everyone makes their own choices... when you're brought up with adversity and judgement because you're not doing it "society's" way... people always have something to say. Keep supporting yourself always because you have to be your biggest supporter and if you do have REAL support from friends, family etc then thank them because a lot of people aren't REALLY there to support you, they're there to hold you back from what you're capable off.
