The most awkward feeling is when you see people who wish you well, become unhappy with how well you flourish.
They have a cap to how high you should jump, how big you should grow, how strong you should get. They limit your capacity with their mind’s assessment of what is possible. Breaking that limit makes them feel vulnerable, or worse still inadequate.
Then they sell a narrative of you getting too much too soon. They first sell ut to themselves, then they sell it to others, before trying to sell it to you.
If you value the relationship, then take them along for the ride. At the start, they will be a drag, but journeys have a way of expanding limited minds.
If you do not value the relationship, totally shut them out. Good or bad, people can only continue to judge you if you keep giving them a taste of you.
