So true. My art teacher said if I don’t make art, he’ll be sorely disappointed. My English teacher said if I don’t become a writer, I’ll be wasting my talents. My family said writers and artists go hungry, don’t be stupid. Happens all the time. It took a long time to find my way back to the arts.

I love your last sentence. So true, and so well put.
