It will become more difficult to express your art, and get someone to listen to your message, if you let close minded people’s envy get in your way.
When you are an artist, people will discourage you from going forth to live your dreams.
It can be a Southern Bigot that can’t see anything past their summer home and 9 snooty “friends” that have basically sucked all of the imagination out of them, trying to “one up each other” their entire shallow lives.
It could be a single mom that desires to become a writer, but also has to stay at home to raise her daughter and because of stress starts writing less, almost giving up on her talent.
Life is what you make it.
I was doing my job at a firm, and instead of them admitting I was great employee, Elsie (nickname) would dedicate every moment of her hungry life trying to cause confusion with everyone in the office. She can give you a fake smile, like no other.
Did I let that racist mammal get to me?
I knew that a snitch, will do what they do best, run and tattle.
So I gave ELSIE something to tell and family, ELSIE didn’t let me down.
I laugh at her life because what does she have outside of her surroundings?
People harbor resentment when you have a strong will.
Never fall short of your dreams, live like everyday is the last day instead of a building block to your legacy.
If someone tries to make your day a living hell, PAY ATTENTION to your talents.
The evil ones are upset and are afraid that you took the chance, when they did everything in their power to destroy you mentally and financially, and were just being evil in general.
Make them think you are stupid, when you are just as intelligent and aware as them.
STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN AND STAND BEHIND YOUR ART.
God Forbid, you live your life and prove them wrong. That time and effort you let them manipulate you, is the time you should have spent on your book, painting, documentary and on your music.
