What Do You Do When Friends or Family Don't Believe You or Support You?
Shortly after I started this blog I was so excited to share my newly self titled site.I started telling friends about it on facebook, I got a call from one of girlfriends and she was just in awe of this blog I had started. She complemented me and told me how she really thought it was such an awesome idea and she enjoyed reading it. I was so excited that I had the support of one of my friends.
On the other hand, I have a friend (who shall remain nameless) who I've been friends with for quite awhile who I've told about my blog several times, but I have yet to get as much as a response out of her other than she's seen the message on facebook. Wow, was I crushed for awhile about that.
It's a special thing when someone "gets" you. I have just a couple of friends that do and some family members and obviously, followers that I get comments from, from all across the planet (Hey, followers *waves*).
It's always good to have encouragement when it comes to persuing your passion.It's even sweeter when you have atleast one person in your corner that has your back at all times. We all know that sometimes that's just not the case and we have to fight on our own.
Most of all you need to believe in yourself first and foremost. It hurts that even so called "friends" don't support you or aren't real with you but you have to press on.
I know it sounds corny, or redundant but really ,if no one else believes in you, you MUST believe in yourself.
When starting new endevours or stepping out of the box, don't always count on everyone to "get" you or support you. Just remember, the one's who count will always be there and be on your side!
It makes me think of the following song...
"The Motivation for me was them tellin' me what I could not be....oh well"-Pharell ("So Ambitious"-a song off of Jay-Z's The BluePrint III)
