Everybody is “okay” with you as long as you maintain status quo with them.
They relate with you because you understand their plight. Well, you wear same shoes, figuratively, so why wouldn’t you understand?
The moment you “break rank”, the moment you decide to move to a higher ground, they dislike you. Why? Well, they have strived for so long to move to that higher ground and have nothing but scars to show for it. They take succor when they look around and see people at same level with them.
When you break free, wen you move on, you remind them of their failures. No one wants to be reminded of the times they’ve failed. So they dislike you, because the mere sight of you makes a statement, “I tried and I failed”.
So until you’re ready to be disliked, misunderstood and alone, you are not ready for success yet.
Next thing that happens is they begin to avoid you. This is not because you’re no longer fun to be with, rather because your being seen and heard makes them uncomfortable with themselves and serve as a reminder of their short comings.
Make up your mind to be alone, misunderstood and disliked by those closest to you now. It is then you are stiring your boat for success.
