Honestly in life, sometimes you shouldn’t care about what people say. The targets of some persons around you is to ensure that you fall from grace to grass. You shouldn’t give their advices any thoughts. They will always want to criticize you and offer you a ‘better’ routes; whereas their agenda is like a strong venom.
In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and
again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the
deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great
devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who
at the best knows in the end the triumph of high
achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least
fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never
be with those cold and timid souls who neither know
victory nor defeat.”
Some of the people who criticize you don’t have a clue of what you’re passing through: when they see you wear a less expensive clothe, they don’t know you’re saving some money. When they see you pray fervently and mock you, they didn’t know you understand the battles you have to win.
Sometimes you just have to turn a deaf ear to some people around you. It’s impossible to please the whole universe.
