I’m sorry to hear that you’re having such a difficult time. I want you to know that you aren’t weird, I can guarantee you aren’t the only person who feels that way. In some way I can relate to you, I also hate the idea of working all day in an unfulfilling job and being in nature is very important to me also. You don’t need to feel like a weirdo or an outsider, I think it’s incredible that you don’t want to be like everyone else.
It sounds to me that you would be so much happier if you pursued this life that you so eagerly want, I can understand how difficult it is to have different views and opinions to your family but you can’t live your life doing what others want you to do. I’m sure that the people that love you will simply just want you to be happy but if they’re holding you back and it’s making you miserable I hope you can find the strength to realise that your life is YOURS and you are in control of your happiness and your choices. So please please stop beating yourself up and go experience nature and do all the things you love and if you can try and find a way to earn money around your passion in life, you can do anything if you want it badly enough.

I think you’d be surprised at how many people do the same thing, I know I do and the amount of times people have given me advice but I can see that they don’t follow through with it themselves. I think the problem is we are much harder on ourselves than everyone else, we don’t treat ourselves as well as we should and we expect so much more from ourselves. There could a number of reasons for why we do this but I think the bottom line is self care and self love, we need to be able to love and respect ourselves in order to do the best for ourselves. It’s not easy but I think the more you practice this the more you’ll find that you end up following your own advice because you’ll want to do the best for you.
I hope this makes sense!
