In living this life, there may be times when family, friends, associates and yes even society will misunderstand or misjudge you. Have heart, and stay focus, keep your eye on your goal. Know what you want, and where you want to go. Every person has an opinion - And yes they will think your opinion is selfish. But not their own. Ignore them, tomorrow they will have a new opinion, and a new object or person to focus that opinion on.
