There is something about a dream that can bring out the ugly in others.
I made the mistake of giving too many details. I do this a lot. When I have a great idea, I want to announce it to the world.
HEY, LOOK AT THIS GREAT THING I’M DOING.
Please, please take note – keep your greatest ideas and dreams to yourself until they have completely blossomed and become something tangible. Not everyone is your fan. Not everyone wants to see you succeed. In fact, many would like to take that shiny dream and tarnish it. Isn’t that awful?
I sometimes ask myself how people can be so spiteful. But then I remember this is the world I live in. This is the world I am still figuring out. Although I make mistake after mistake, I refuse to become jaded. Mistakes are part of life. Mistakes make us who we are.
I will not let this mistake that I made drown me.
I refuse to let you do that.
My best advise to anyone feeling defeated and trampled on by any bottom-dwellers is to remember that not everyone is out to get you. There are those who love and support you. You may even have fans you’re completely unaware of. When you find those who stand behind you, keep them close and please, return the favor to them.
I will be back soon with a more cheerful post, but until then, keep being you.
