There is a devil and that devil isn’t a monster, it’s your past. Those are the people who hated you for who you are. Those who cannot accept that you are better than them, therefore belittles you and disrespected you to lower your self esteem, to make you angry, to destruct you from your goals, so that they can laugh at you.
But you shall ignore all resistance, those are only illusions, they’re not real. In reality, stay away from them, surround yourself with the new people, those who appreciates you, those who sees your value, those who uplifts you and support you and teach you the right way. Does not confuses you, instead direct to the point. Always do the right thing and open your eyes to your current reality.
Care not about others too much, because they’re none of your business. They’ve got brains who’s heading them, you’ve got yours, there’s nothing you can do to theirs, follow your brain instead of theirs, and you can only do that by focusing yourself to the right direction, whichever way you take as long as it is something new.
