You had the courage and the willpower to venture out on your own path, and you persevered through obstacle after obstacle in order to do what you truly enjoy doing.

That's something special. It really is.
Very nicely said. A matured comment.

I would also like to add, when one follows one's passion and tries out something unusual unlike the guy next door generally does or the guys in the neighborhood generally do, and when it does not work out, one should also be flexible enough to make amends. That's what all successful people, who venture out of ordinary, do; they take calculated risks. When it does not work out, they make changes or stop it and venture into something else.

9-2 9-4 7-2 Now, who's the GOAT?
