“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that. But the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” - Mark Twain

Do you have somebody like this in your life or maybe several? If they are friends, let them go. If they are family, learn to set up some hardcore boundaries.
