Why Would Anyone say That?!

I just don't get people some time. When a person is trying to improve their lives and others. They get a whole lot a flack. A person told me to "Tiki turn back." Why? Why would someone tell me that. I'm trying to live my dreams and help when I can. What's the problem? Please don't allow anyone to stop you from going after your dreams. Instead of trying to pull down. People should be pulling up! Up, up, up and away! That's right!

It's not really any of their business.

Not sure why other people feel it necessary to try to quash another persons attempts at going after their dreams. Perhaps they fear that failure will result and they are trying to spar the person from the feelings that accompany failure. Perhaps they fear that a person who reaches that dream will abandon them.

Fear could be a big part of it. People should live their dreams despite what others think.

I like to do my best to ignore the naysayers along the way. I'm better off for it, even if they are so discouraging.

Sometimes people pull you down out of their own guilt at not doing more or flying higher. If you succeed they may have no excuse not to themselves.

Sometimes it's because of insecurities or because they never had the courage to live their dreams.
