I have a lot of supportive people in my life -- but for every person who supports me, there are about 10 who don't.
People are funny that way. They tell us they love us, they want whats best for us, they want to see us succeed and do what makes us happy...
...until we do something that may seem scary or outside the conventional norms, then all of the sudden they pull out all the stops to try and talk us out of our dreams.
But then you have those who, in the same situation, are ready to run with you and do whatever they can to see you succeed. 💖
Those are the people we need to focus on. 😍
Especially because we all know those who didn't support us in the start will come back full of support when we succeed in what we set out to achieve because the element of uncertainty that we all seem to fear so much has disappeared.
Funny how that works, eh? 🤷🏼♀️
The point is, don't get hung up on the people who doubt you, dismiss you, or make you feel like you're crazy.
I have a tendency to do this... but I have a really good friend who always talks me out of it and who is always ready to run with me when I need a partner in crime.
She always says "If they doubt you/don't believe in you/dont support you, they aren't the kind of people you want to keep around anyway." 🙌🏼
If we surround ourselves with negativity, were going to create negativity. On the other had, if we surround ourselves with positivity, only positive things will come our way, and that is what we need to focus on. ✨
