Just read this. Glad that you found what you’re looking for. Cheers to you!
Social conformity doesn’t feature in my decision making checklist! -> This specifically and the overall tone of the post sounds like all your life you’ve been told what you should do or be in life. If that’s the case, keep doing what you want/love. Society’s job is to talk and they do it well. 26 years is a long time to keep thinking and getting bothered about it :)
