Along your journey, there may be many that will oppose you. It can come in different forms, but ultimately it's rooted in something beyond yourself. Some may do all in their power to make you feel bad for what you like, for your decisions, for how you look. Those are not people that can remain in your circle. Cultivate a sphere focused on progression. At times this opposition will come from family, and at times this will come from people that were once on your side. Understand that everything has its season, its era, and although a past may have been great, this all may not be in line with what you need in the present moment, or where you need to go in the future. At times opposition may need to be confronted head on, and at other times it may require a side step. Either is acceptable, and guilt and remorse are unnecessary. Protect your spark at all costs, and design your life as you see fit.
When you feel opposition, use it as a compass. It indicates what you care about and wish to protect.
Know your aim, and don't let anyone stop you.
Honest with no apology, be yourself entirely, show us your Realm.
