Have you noticed how some people would laugh at you when they see you strive to accomplish something?
They will laugh at you because they think you’re stupid, or because they think they know better.
They judge what you do and make comments about it.
They try hard not to express it in front of you sometimes and then laugh about you behind your back and sometimes, they just cannot hold their comments even in front of you.
It hurts, right?
But should it really?
How does it matter?
Yes, life would be easier without their condescending comments and snide laughter – but at the end of the day, the fact that they support you or not remains inconsequential in comparison to whether or not you do what you’re supposed to.
The only thing that does matter is what you think about yourself. If you think you are doing what is right for yourself, nothing else should bother you.
You do not need anyone’s approval to do what is right for you. And it is only by getting past the public trial and actually doing your job that you will make progress.
So she can crib as much as she likes, he can jeer as much as he likes and they can laugh as much as they like.
You don’t have to care.
