A person who tells you that you can't achieve something that you are passionately working at is a fine example of a bully. Wish that person well and move forward, breathing in all that you are deeply grateful for. There is no reasoning with bullies, narcissists, egomaniacs, and those who are straight up greedy. Send them love and send them off.
