Don’t allow people to make you feel bad for being great. I often see people water themselves down to make others around them feel comfortable. Let me tell you, you are truly doing yourself a disservice and paralyzing your growth when you do this.
People who truly have your best interest in mind will be genuinely happy for you regarding any accomplishments that you make. They won’t ever make you feel bad with passive aggressive antics that feed their egos.
Remember , some of us are born with that “it” factor but it sometimes takes us a while to find our purpose but when we do, great things begin to happen. I encourage you to surround yourself with people who will push you to continue to develop and limit your interactions with those who are most comfortable around you as long as you dwell in mediocrity.
Live in your purpose. Let your light shine and surround yourself with individuals who continue to help you keep your light shining.
