If you have a passion for something in life, pursue it. It may be a job, education, money or relocation. Whatever it may be, do your research first. Know your options and vision it all coming together full circle in the end.
Too many times we can be persuaded by what someone else says or thinks. Well, that same unsolicited advice could crush your dream.
If you know that God has given you a definite direction in life, don't allow anyone to interrupt that plan.
Others will not always understand to share what you may have in mind for yourself. You may decide to do something, doesn't mean "I" may go about it the same way. This doesn't give me the right to be negative or opinionated about "your" decision.
Instead be supportive and ask questions. If you love that person you will try to embrace their efforts and show some love, by being positive and encouraging.
