The truth is…or at least my version of the truth 🙂
Not everyone is going to be on your side. Not everyone is going to support you. Even those you think should or would want too.
It hurts, I know. They have their reasons. Maybe they’re valid, maybe not. The thing is, it shouldn’t cause you to doubt yourself. When you’re perusing something “different,” people don’t always understand. If you’re working hard on something that they wish they were doing but aren’t, it’s not you, it’s them. They may even have sarcastic, snarky comments about what you’re doing. And they laugh about it. The saying is true, misery loves company. When you’re doing well, it reveals they aren’t. It’s just the darker side of our human nature. Try and remember we all have a little bit of those traits in us. Jealously, envy…we all have some hater-rade in our psyche 😊
Who really knows what someone else is thinking or feeling. My advice… don’t take it personally. Don’t let it get to you. OK, maybe for a moment. But that’s it. Do not let it dampen your confidence. Don’t let it cause you to stray.
Do you believe in what you’re doing? Does your soul feel good doing it? Is it hurting anyone? Ok then. Hold on to that good feeling of doing what you enjoy. If someone is doubting you, force yourself to go back to that good feeling.
What you allow into your mind is so imperative. Your thoughts create your emotions and how you feel is EVERYTHING. Always be on guard when it comes to negative energy. That kind of force takes away happiness. It takes away your potential to live in blissfulness.
So yeah…not everyone is going to be on your side. The sooner you accept it and become ok with it, the ease of walking your own path becomes more apparent.
