“Don’t try to win over the haters; you are not a jackass whisperer.” -Brené Brown
Regardless of what you do, you will always have critics. No matter what decisions you make in your life or what you do, there will always be those who will respond with negativity. Unfortunately, fear and criticism often stops people before they’ve really gotten started.
The key thing to remember is that just because people criticize doesn’t necessarily mean they care. Typically, criticizers simply make their negative comments and move on. It’s up to you push on, beyond the negativity, to accomplish what you believe in. If it’s worth the effort, you’ll almost always meet resistance: keep an open mind and move on.
