2. People are truly happy for me because following one's passion is a courageous thing to do.
3. People are happy to know that someone out there is following their heart while themselves have other constraints in life, and therefore cannot do it themselves.
4. My decision is an inspiration for them, and has encouraged them to follow their heart as well.
I tell this to my friends all the time, and it might even sound cliche, but it is absolutely true. When you are following your heart, life has a purpose, and it is no longer going with the flow. You will take charge of your life, and make a playground out of it. That's a good feeling. So don't over think, over analyze, and just DO IT.
