It's important to remember to always take chances. Growing up, my dad always told me, "the greater the risk, the greater the reward." Even simple tasks like purchasing items that your peers don't agree with, but you believe in, is a good step in the right direction aka growing up. Trust yourself, and although you may not always make the best decision, you will learn from it.
The above two photos are home decor items i bought, despite a lot of negativity brought on by peers. I love them - go me!
