Be aware, when you change, evolve or try something new you will make people very uncomfortable for 2 reasons.

First, they will have to adjust how they are with you. Most people are fearful and lazy so they will resent you for this.

Secondly, by you changing, especially for what you believe is ‘the better’, you force others to take a look at themselves and the things they would like to change… but change is tough, so they will resent you for making it obvious that they are responsible for their circumstances.

Ignore them, and keep growing stronger! In time they will either adjust to the new you, choose to grow stronger themselves, or simply disappear.

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.

It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.
