If you wanna make money to afford your desires, SPOT ON you are on right track. If you are doing so to please people around you, then ask yourself once “what’s the necessity & is it even worth it!?”
People always play this People card which involves parents, partner, siblings, friends or own kids. What you do at the end is “flexing how good you are at in supporting others!!” Let’s be true, you did that only to satisfy your motives. Be blunt about your desires & motives instead. People or things, somehow both are temporary. When you work towards your desires, you are feeding your soul some healthy dose of happiness. There is nothing wrong in being selfish towards fetching your happiness.
