The whole “do it to prove them wrong” or “do it to rub it in the faces of the naysayers” mentalities can be exhilarating, but trust me, it’s not going to help you thrive. Sure it could help propel you toward your goals in the short term, but it won’t be fulfilling. Doing things out of spite will only get you so far, do things for YOURSELF. Do it to prove to yourself that you can, to prove yourself right! It’s not you vs. them, it’s you vs. YOU Who tf are you doing this for anyway?! YOU!!!
