Go do something you are passionate about. Who cares what others say. If you do things because you want to be accepted, people may never accept you for the rest of your life. Do what you love. Do what makes you happy. In the end, it is about how you feel and what you think of yourself and not what others think of you. Your own happiness and self acceptance is more important than anything in this world. The world can turn you away all they want but if you accept yourself, know nothing else matters and nothing ever will. Just have tawakul (trust) in Allah and follow your heart.
