JUST KNOW but leave it between them and karma and just keep getter better at whatever it is you do. Not to spite their character, but to show others what's possible with yours.
I used to ask for permission and be dependent on other peoples opinions... Until I realize how much less of me I had become. Funny how, the same people that said " don't wear pink at all dude" happen to say "those pants are cool af". Lesson: choose yourself everyday.
“Tell everyone you know: ⠀
'My happiness depends on me, ⠀
so you’re off the hook.' ⠀
And then demonstrate it. ⠀
Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good.” Esther Abraham-Hicks
