If you know what you really want, the life is easy.
Most people don't know what they want. They are too busy to think about it most of the time. They are busy to just survive. Then, the next thing they ask is to raise the level of survival. They want a nicer car, fancy house and so on. Those are NOT what they want. Those are something they think they want.
Ultimately, if you don't pursue what you really want, you are going to die with despair.
The opposite of courage is not coward in our society. It's conformity. From the perspective of our society, it's very convenient to have people all alike. But, it is backward. Our society exists for us, not the other way around.
To be an artist is a hard path and it is worth trying. After all, we want what we want. If you put emphasis on survival, you will lose at the end. Don't be a person who didn't even pick a pen! The joy comes from doing what you want to do. Archiving the goal is not important after all.
