You can let other people (your friends, family, competitors, exes) dictate how BIG you become... or you can allow yourself room to grow, regardless of how other people feel about it.
The truth is, when you decide you're ready to allow love, success, money, marriage, and/or motherhood into your life, not everyone's going to be happy for you.
Some people will talk behind your back. Some will stop returning your calls. Some will send you nasty emails. When this happens - and it will happen - remember that their neggo isn't about YOU. It's about how they feel about themselves.
In these moments, you have a choice. You can decide that these naysayers and neggo sprayers are right - and try to squish yourself back into a smaller box where you tiptoe your way through life. OR you can accept that not everyone's got your best interests at heart so it's up to YOU to love, honor, and allow your continuing evolution.
Are you experiencing any shade or hate from others right now? What can you learn from it? How can you love yourself through it?
