Not everyone in your life will support your dreams or be sensitive to them.
Don’t expect everyone to be supportive or even care about your dreams. It’s not about them. It’s about you.
A friend of mine recently called my dream of writing just a hobby. It took a lot of energy for me to hold in my anger.
A person’s dream in life is like their baby. They love and treasure it. When someone calls it a mere hobby we fight the urge to throw our drink in their face.
Keep your drink in hand and don’t waste it by flinging it in the face of this insensitive ignoramus.
Don’t worry about what that person said.
As long as you don’t call your dream a hobby then you’ll be fine.
Your true calling, passion and dream in life should never be treated as a hobby. If you’re serious about making it happen then don’t call it a hobby. Make it a part of who you are.
People will make comments about your life. Let them. Don’t let what they say change how you see yourself or your dreams. Just keep moving.
