You don’t “go for it” because it goes against the normal and that means that you will have to do something different and people are going to see you differently and then they will treat you differently and probably won’t help you because they don’t quite see “it” the way that you do and in fact they are more than likely going to go out of their way to get you to maintain the “way” that they know you and that seems to feel like their against you but it’s a mixed bag because you know that most of “them” don’t know you well enough to “hate” you but their lack of support in between the moments of pacifying your ego tends to come off as offensive and demeaning and in the meantime you’ve been distracted enough by it so much so that you’re not doing what you could be when you should be and so your mouth and mindset become just momentary spokesmen for what you would be if you were to ignore the natural inclination to care so much for the opinions and suggestions of others and just do the thing you wanted to do in the first place.
There is always going to be resistance and struggle of some magnitude, obstacles and doubts, fears and rules, stereotypes and questions, and much more to bring reason or excuse as to why you “might not”, “won’t”, “shouldn’t try”, or aren’t “meant to” do something. But there is one reason you can, because you did. Because you did whatever it takes to make YOU happen. No matter who or what does something that could have stopped you had you not kept going.
