Some people will realize how amazing you are before you realize it yourself. Some may push you up and encourage you to shine even brighter, but some will purposely dull it and drag you down. Why? Because they simply cannot handle it. One of many things you need to know about people is that, majority of them are not very secure of themselves. They can be the nicest people in the world, but there are some who as soon as they realize what you are capable of, they either cut you off, or sofucate you with things that will discourage you to move above them. It’s like they enjoy the feeling of having somebody below them. They enjoy the feeling of being asked. They enjoy the fact that somebody needs them and that is the fact that they do not want to go away. They want to make sure you stay there. They want to make sure people like you realize that there is hope, but at the same time they don’t want you moving forward. For their own selfish reasons of course. For their own ego. The sooner you realize this, the better for you.
You are a star. Don’t apologize for burning too bright.
