Left Alone

Some people see you striving for something more, something better, and hate you for it. Not because they do not want the same things you are toiling for, but because they already tried and gave up. They made peace with their unfulfilled lives. And then you come along, with your energy, your stubbornness, relentlessly chasing after your dreams — they feel left out. That is why they oppose you. Why they build barriers for you along your path. Deep down, it is not because they do not want you to succeed. It is because they do not want to be left alone.
