Anyone else get judged for wanting to do something within the arts for a career? Literally kills me and makes me feel so uninspired and unmotivated! I'm going to be doing a photography degree but the snide comments I get from some people who are more academic really put me down! The "Oh.. good luck with that!" "How is that going to earn you money?" "Anyone can take a photo with a good camera!" ugh! I always get told to ignore it and I do, but sometimes I just overthink it and wonder if I should be going into something like that, anyone else? haha
...or just paranoid?
