You said you could not possibly go on, that this would be the end of you, but still you picked yourself up and went on. You went on and on and got yourself through it all. So tell me, what else can you not do? What else is there that can stop you?
Y’all this is important. I am 43 and I am going to tell you
something most adults won’t.
If you want to draw for a living, if you want to write for a
living do it. If you just want to do it for fun, do it, if you want to play
video games as your hobby DO IT. All my life, even now, I have people telling
me “when are you going to get a real job instead of trying to make a living at
that 3d thing you do” and “oh are you STILL playing video games”
You know what I’ve learned over the last few years? There
are people with PhD’s playing video games and writing fanfics, there are people
with art degrees drawing for commissions and just for fun of other people’s
OCs. No one tells you those things.
My Dad who is like the biggest douche on
the planet and is all about appearances hides in his office at home on the
weekends to play PC games but will tell everyone around him that gaming is for
kids no self-respecting adult plays games.
I am calling BULLSHIT! If you want to write, draw, dance,
play video games, LARP, play board games, raise goats, whatever you want to do…DO
IT! People will LIE to you to make themselves feel better about the things they
gave up, or to hide the fact that they do those things too.
The thing about life is, we only get one (unless
reincarnation is real) so do what makes you happy. Yes, you may have to work a separate
job to afford to do the things you want to do, but you don’t have to give them
up, not at 16 not at 60 and not at 160 (except death might stop you) don’t ever
let anyone tell you that you CAN’T because you damn sure CAN!
Non-vegans trying to lecture vegans on nutrition is hilarious because funnily enough most of the time vegans are very aware of the nutritional requirements of a vegan diet, moreso than most people on a non-vegan diet who have probably not particularly considered their nutritional requirements before.
Wild how that happens, right? It’s almost like… Vegans… Generally know more about vegan diets…. Than non-vegans…. Wow
you will not be a traitor if you call yourself a lesbian and find out you aren’t. you can be a lesbian and it’s valid now, and that’s what matters. you don’t have to figure everything out, just be who you are, who you want to be, in this moment. your love for women is more important than anything standing in your way.
