Not everyone will like what you decide to do in life and that's okay. However, those people do not value in your life and it comes to a point where you have to dismiss those people and find people that do. We live in a society where people will tell you "that's dumb" or "why are you doing that?" and those people are the ones, in most cases, are the ones that settle because its comfortable. Be proud that what you are trying to do or wanting do matters to people and if people don't like it...it's just words at the end of the day.
