The truth is, it isn’t always easy being the person who follows their dreams. It isn’t always easy being the person who does things differently, who chooses their own journey. It isn’t easy feeling like you are falling behind, like you are existing in a completely different lane in comparison to your peers. But instead of seeing that as a disheartening thing — you have to embrace the different lane. You have to let it motivate you.
Because that’s the thing — life will happen to you. It will weather you. But it will never defeat you. You just have to know your purpose, and believe in it with ruthless conviction. You have to be your biggest fan, even when it is difficult, even when you feel like you’re not a shining example of success. You have to keep going.
So keep going. Keep going and remind yourself that there will never be a perfect time to do things differently, or to pursue something that genuinely scares you. Following your passion doesn’t work like that. It is constant work, not just physically, but mentally. You will have to do the hard things. You will break and rebuild. You will find your resilience. You will roll with every circumstance that comes up for you. You will move forward. You will push towards the person you want to be, and the life you want to live, because while following your dreams is tough — you will always be tougher. 💛
