They will say they don’t like the new you.
They will say you are fake.
They will say you’re selfish.
They will say you don’t deserve it.
They will say you aren’t good enough.
They will say you don’t have what it takes.
They will say you forgot where you came from.
They will say your past failures deem you unqualified for your current position and future aspirations.
Lucky for you, they don’t matter. No amount of hateful, skeptical, or jealous talk can take away your talent, purpose, or promise.
Growth is not always accepted and understood by others. Level up and do what’s best for yourself anyway. This journey is yours for a reason. Don’t give up just because some don’t have your vision or have what it takes to make the trip.
