There is no need to explain yourself to anyone. You have your own life, and it’s only you who has the right to live it as you want. Just make sure that you have been true to yourself, and you will not require explaining anything to others ever again.
You do not take others’ approval to live your life. Isn’t it? Remember that each and every person in this world will have different opinions about things, and thus, your outlook will vary from them immensely.
Just make sure that you are happy for all that you do. Just make sure that you live your life in your own terms. Last but not the least, your happiness is all that matters at the end of the day.
You cannot make everyone happy all the time, and thus, it is more important to bother about your own happiness in the first place.
Remember that at times, people would have their own selfish reasons to put forward an opinion for you. Do not let others do that to you. You are not a kid who would go through the way based on how others take you to!
You are mature enough to make your own decisions, and thus, make things occur as you like them to move!
If you think that following your passion is actually going to help you, do not give your ear to what others are saying, just walk in the path you have always craved for, and you are sure to succeed.
