“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that but the really great ones make you feel that you, too can become great.” –Mark Twain
Be careful with the negative comments from those close to you. It can puncture you and leave deep wounds. Remember, someone who truly loves you will provide wings to your dreams and ambitions. They will be supportive and provide you with uplifting feedback. We do, often, listen to advice, but this must not be confused with negativity. It may seem like there is a thin line between advice and belittling, but always remember to listen and block out anything that may seem detrimental to your well-being. Advice, real advice, is often provided from wisdom and love. Belittling is simply provided in jealousy, anger, hate and in order to make themselves feel good. Your ambitions are worth something. Your dreams are worth something and you can achieve them. To think, the word and thought of ambition was seen as something negative, especially for women. Now, we can revel in having ambitions and succeed.
I apologize if this lacks cohesiveness, I am really sick, this morning, and feel a bit loopy. Have a wonderful day.
