I like this quote because you can take the word writer out and it still applies to just about anything.
People who have "made it" are people who just kept going. Regardless of what people told them they couldn't do. Whether or not they felt the love and support because a lot of times I'm sure they didn't.
People who do nothing don't understand people who do something. They just don't get it. They don't understand what all the fuss is about. They feel you're wasting your time. They'll tell you it will never amount to anything, or roll their eyes and suck their teeth when someone tries to praise you.
But, it's okay.
What's for you is for you. Everybody can't go where you're going.
Just keep going.
