This is called status-quo of the society.
As we growth old, we try to shut ourselves up from what we think that those things should go that way. Sometimes people appreciate you for being obvious and direct but somehow they also want to kick your ass off for being that for too much.
At the end, no one even care. That’s still you who have to look after your every action and responsible for every thing you do. I think I will never regret for doing ‘THAT’ thing.
Give up, doesn’t mean we lost but it means we brave enough to find the other way.
