You should stop looking for confirmation and validation from others in order to set up what should or possible can make you happy.
You decide your life and set your comfort zone. You don't need to prove anything to anyone. This is your life. It's nobody's business to see what you see, it's nobody's business to support you for what you choose. It's only your business to see your path and support your own decisions and stand by them. This is your life not theirs. Own it and don't waste the time you have got in this journey to convince others how you wanna live. As long as you are convinced. Nothing else matters.
