Don't ever apologize for being you MF, Those haters you have are not accustomed to a woman who stands up for herself, they are sheep and you are a leader. They feel threatened by you. They are sad because they are irrelevant to your life, T.
Cheer for people. Support them. Encourage them. Someone else's success has no determination on yours. Just because someone else shines doesn't mean you have to sit in the background. There is enough sun for everyone if you believe it & focus on your path.
People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so that you will eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall
