You are more valuable than you know; adapt and do your best.

There are seemingly endless opponents in life. There is rivalry and there is spite. People make themselves enemies for the most trivial of reasons. They criticize and get jealous instead of applauding. It can seem that way – really.

Well, the fact is you are making an impact, and a positive one if you like. Just keep going. Don’t give up. Don’t be afraid. Fear is the mind killer someone wrote. At least get past your fears. You are good. You are great. Your good work will be recognized as such in ways that you might not imagine.

It does take work – work in the sense that you must do something. Take the risk. Work. Sure you need to work at basic needs things, but work at what you love, too. Find the time without hurting yourself or anyone. Ask people kindly for some space when you need it. Work towards getting to work more at what you love. Do it all kindly.

Some good advice I heard: read or do, pause, reflect, and connect.

It’s not wrong to be cautious or untrusting. In fact, it is best to be that way. Only let people in carefully. Make them earn your trust. It takes time and effort, but have them verify that they are destined to be in your life. They should only be in your life if they want to make it better – enhancing you. Bullying, using and controlling behaviors are not going to make your life better. Those behaviors consume others. Don’t be consumed. Live your life. There is time enough for love. Don’t force it.

Help those that are less fortunate.
