When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart (via paveo)
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.Elliot Hulse (via stayhungry-getbig)
