Never be afraid of what someone else will think of you doing what you want to do. If you are certain this is what you want, go for it! It is your life. Always remember: what you eat doesn't make anyone else shit. If you want to risk it and it doesn't negatively affect anyone around you, do what you want!
Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
