Do what inspires you !!
"Do not give up, things might not favour you always"
Exceptions can be there. But that is not rule, only exception.
Each profession or job has its own risk and opportunities. The carpenter may get hurt with his chisel. The writer may spoil his shirt with ink spill.the banker may face bad loans,the housewife may get her hands burned with hot boiling water or from the flame of the stove. So every work and job have their own unique risks.
From outside it may appear to those not involved as smooth and attractive. That may invite envy also.
As the proverb,'the grass on the other bank is always green'. One should wear the shoes to know where it pinches.
There is always a gap between the cup and lip. Not every one will get what he/she wanted . It will be a compromise and one has to satisfy oneself by convincing that depending on one's priorities and necessities one has to accept it till a better one comes by.
