People will judge you based on their perception of your work but before it rubs you the wrong way or the right way , remember this.
If you are following ‘people’ , it will bother you the most, even to the extent that their reactions (against or supportive) will decide your next move .
If you are following ‘your mind’, it will bother you a little less but still would play a part as a fodder to your future decisions .
If you are following ‘your heart’, it will bother you slightly lesser but wouldn’t have much impact on your odyssey.
But if you follow ‘your gift’, nothing that people do or say will matter , in fact nothing else matters.
So trust your gift if you have found it already, otherwise set your sails in the search of your gift.
