It is all in your point of view.
It is funny (or sad really) how many people have an opinion on what other people should do or how they should proceed with their life. I have listened to many people over the years try and suggest, or help someone else, and truthfully they really have no idea what that other person wants or where they are planning to go.
I have had people tell me that “If they want to be a better photographer they need to buy this or that camera” or “they are never going to …………….. unless they do this or that”. Today I realized what that must look like on the larger scale of things.
