One does not need to worry about what others think or say. If it's something positive, good, if it's negative, why give?. Do what you feel is best for you, and take advice from those you trust and that sincerely have the best intentions. Remember everything has its outcome whether it's for the good or the bad. Don't let anyone stop you from being what you want to be, there will always be people like that, it's best to ignore them and carry on. Peace.
