dont give up on anything. dont let anyone keep you from doing what you love. as long as it does not hurt others, then they dont have the to right to.
its your life. your in charge of your own life. when someone starts to breath, eat, sleep, walk, for you. then thats when they can control you. because it sounds like they are you.
teachers, friends, parents, are there to support you at what ever you do. not to make you do things you dont want to do. if they say "you cant do that", "you have to do this". then give them the finger an say "fuck you". dont take shit from nobody. it might seem like sometimes you dont have a choice. well guess what, YOU DO!
stay strong, stand up for what you be leave in, dont let other people tell you other wise .
but there is a bad side to this. i hate it when people say, "they made me do it". thats bull! no one can make you do anything. u have a choice to lessen to them or not. you have a brain, (i hope) use it! if it sounds stupid just walk away, or tell them no and do something else. because at the end. you are probably going to b the one that gets hurt, or in trouble.
