Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
This is literally so inspirational to me right now.
I needed this really badly right now.
dear gods would you STOP with this shit? sure, doing what you love makes you happy, but that’s not always possible because guess what? living costs money. you claim it doesn’t cost much, but for some it’s a huge struggle to afford the rent and food every month, and if they just quit whatever job is helping them scrape by, in order to do what they love, they would no longer be able to afford life. ‘love knitting? own a yarn shop’ wow do you know how much it costs to set up a business? do you know how hard it is to keep that business running? people need food and shelter and those things cost money. money that you can’t always get from doing what you love. it’s great if you can afford to do what you love as a job, and it’s great that for you it doesn’t take much to live comfortably, but it’s not a realistic option for everyone. stop making people feel bad for making the choice to do something they dont enjoy as a profession in order to keep themselves fed and sheltered. goddamn.
