7 Things to Remember When People Don’t Support You - Deepstash
Theodore Roosevelt

I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!

1. Your passion is a priority.

Whether people support you or not,

  1. Do you really want to look back in regret one day down the line?
  2. To not know what could have happened if you tried to do what you really wanted to do?

This love of yours is one of the most important things in your life. Follow your heart, and not the words of others just to live up to their expectations.

2. Life is short.

It may be a little disheartening to have people around you discourage you, but remember, life is short.

Remember that life is short, and it will be easier to stick to your own convictions when other people disagree with your choices or put you down.

People who don’t support you and discourage you may not actually be bad people who intentionally want to destroy your dreams.

Sometimes they just don’t understand why you do what you do, so they voice out their concerns, which may make them seem dissenting.

If anything, since they don’t fully understand, I don’t see why it’s something to be upset over.

Sometimes when people don’t support what you’re doing, it may be more about them than you.

It could be plain ignorance or even jealousy, but some people tend to attack things that are new to them.

So again, don’t take their words to heart. If their criticism isn’t constructive in any way, they may be discouraging you because of their own fears and insecurities.

5. Anything is possible.

Nobody can predict the future for certain.

The people who don’t support you might paint a gloomy picture of what’s to come if you do what you want to do.

Don’t let objections from others become your truth and limit you from creating what you want in life.

Anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard.

6. You can do this without their support.

It’s natural to want support and encouragement from the people around you, but it is possible to do what you want to do without it.

Just think of how many successful, inspiring people took the road less traveled.

You’re a very powerful being, just by yourself. Believe in that, don’t give up, and you’ll go a long way, whichever road you take.

7. You can’t please everyone in life.

If you try to please everyone, it’s going to be next to impossible. So don’t bother. Keep your focus on what you want to do and why.

In an ideal world, we could constantly surround ourselves with positivity. We can’t do that, but we can work on ourselves so that we stay committed and positive.
