Haters gonna hate. No matter where you go, no matter how far you want to go, you’ll always have haters and people who wish you fail. It definitely sucks even more when it’s the people closest to you. I even have family who actually don’t support my career, my YouTube channel, revealing as much as I do online, and my own success.
I like to say the smaller you are, the more freedom you have to do whatever you want (within legal and ethical lines), but I think even when you get bigger and grow your presence, it’s important not to feel the pressure of your presence and still move forward. Speak up even if there is darkness because you will be the light for so many others. As you get bigger, your shadow grows and so do the haters, but so does your impact on the community whether it be positive or negative.
