There will be so many people bringing you down, thinking that they are helping you. There will be so many people hurting you, thinking that they are curing you. There will be so many people intending to put you off for known and unknown reasons. You will feel weak, worthless, and discouraged. What you need to do is ignore all that, and just keep going. Focus. Who are you? Who do you want to be? How can you get there? You have to think, without over thinking, because you have to start doing. Stop feeling sad, angry, hurt, and just move on. Reach your goal. Be who you want to be
“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” Aristotle
