As you grow up, you start to think more about what people think of you.
You stopped doing things that others don't approve of.
At some point, you might even stop doing the things you love if they told you to.
In the end, you don't even know if you really love what you do.
And in the end, you are not sure about "you".
When someone disapproves of what you do.
And they don't believe in you.
When someone leaves you because of what you love to do.
...And when you start losing the sense of what makes you, "you".
Everyone is busy with their own lives – because they are the protagonist.
And in their life, you're just an extra.
People don't think about you all day long.
...And their interest and expectations of you won't last for long. So stop worrying and don't be nervous.
Nobody cares about what you do.
So you shouldn't care about what people think of you.
Just do what you love.
Forget the bystanders.
