You’ve been told no, to stop, to give it up. They tell you it’s not worth the time, the money, the pain. You should turn in and do something stable, sensible. Letting your dreams go are worth living in safety and stability.
But you refuse. You’ve taken your lumps, been burned, ripped off, taken advantage of. You’ve been knocked down and yet each time you stand up, return with ferocity. It would be easier to pursue other avenues, other careers. But where your head says yes, your heart says no. To Hell with the critics and the naysayers. You were born for something better, something greater. Despite the setbacks and the missteps, you keep at it. Where most would have learned to quit, you keep going.
Most lessons are worth learning. Some are not.
