Do not waste your precious time giving one single crap about what anybody else thinks of you. What other people think about you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.
The only questions you ever need to consider when making decisions about your life are 1) Is this something I want to be, do, or have? 2) Is this going to take me in the direction I want to go (not should go)? And 3) Is this going to screw over anybody else in the process? (Your mother being disappointed or your friends being outraged does not qualify as screwing someone over.)
All that matters is what’s true for you, and if you can stay connected to that without straying, you will be a mighty superhero.
You are more than enough. Avoid comparison like the plague.
