    The best thing I have learned though is keep your mouth shut about your life, goals, and plans. I think we like to discuss it with those we are close to thinking they will be excited, happy, and enthusiastic as much as us. But the truth is, they are not. In fact, you will learn that they will sabotage you any way they can because they do not want you to be better than them. Remember, they live the scripted life and have the rat race mentality. Ever little perceived inch forward someone makes in life they take it as a challenge. I have found that things work better for me when I am silent and do everything in secret.

    As you get older, your worry about what other people think, or how they judge you weakens with time. At some point, you reach a "ZERO f*cks given" level. And then you start catching yourself judging others because they give "many f*cks" about stupid shit, like HBO dramas, pro sports teams, black Friday deals, etc.

    It's simple, you cut them out.

    Do people's judgements and opinions affect us? Yes. It's called the "looking glass self".

    It basically says that we look at ourselves the same way our environment sees us. And depending on how shitty it is, it can actually hold you back from a lot of things in life. Kind of like how we were taught how a college degree was gonna make us filthy rich. It can be reversed through awareness and independent-critical thinking.

    People have a more fragile sense of self when they are younger because how powerful our environment is in influencing us.

    Had a lot of negative folks in my life some time ago. Dropped contact with them and my life, mood, and health improved ten fold in what felt like only weeks.

    I used to be a smoker and toxic people remind me a lot of walking cigarettes. You think they're great because you're used to them, but you never fully realize how shitty you felt until they're gone and out of your system.

    As far as people weeding you out because of you improving your situation, those probably weren't friends to begin with.

    Sorry that I forgot to invite you to my party MJ!
    And I do have a story to tell... I was talking to two people on the team at a party one night (probably the party MJ wasn't invited too, :smile2:) and when one left, the other one said to me, JOHN (obviously not his real name) always thinks he knows it all and talks down to everyone on the team. I said, really, I never get that impression from him at all. The other person then said, well that's because he thinks you are more successful than him.
