Most people do not get to spend their lives doing whatever it is they love. Instead, they do what they are told they should do, or what their parents or town or friends or peers suggest that they do.
Or they simply pursue nothing close to their heart at all!
But if you want to "do what you love," you need to see that as a privilege, not an expectation. Those people are not the majority.
So if that's what you truly want, you have to put in the work now.
