To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
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.
