It Scares People When You Grow

It begins with:

“You’ve changed...."

"I remember when..."

"You used to never....”

When we grow, move forward and stretch ourselves, this can spark fear in others. Why? Because they feel like they are being left behind.

This can cause friction. Fights. Judgement.

This is why sometimes people who know us the least support us the most. The people you think will be in your corner sometimes are the ones working hardest to hold you back from your destiny. Don’t let them.

Next time you hear, “I just want what’s best for you,” get clear on if they want what’s best for you or them.

Just because you're going your own way doesn't mean it's the wrong way.

Keep moving forward with no apologies.
