As I’m moving forward with some pretty big changes in my life, I’ve had to accept that not everyone is going to be as excited about those changes as I am. Not everyone will be happy for me, or agree with the choices I make. In fact some people, even people close to me, will flat out disapprove of what I’m doing.
It’s not the first time this has happened, and I’m certain it won’t be the last, but I hope that I’m at least learning to refocus more quickly; to spend less time worrying about how I might temper my actions and make them more palatable to those around me.
Because really, whose life is this anyway?
