So there’s this friend who has started to become quite toxic for me. He makes me feel stupid every time I talk about what I love and constantly discourages me when I talk about my dreams. He is one of those people that think that money will solve all your problems and that being successful means getting a stable job, building a traditional family and making lots of money. I don’t have a problem with that kind of mindset but that’s not success to me, I personally already think I’m successful bc I’ve grown a lot as a person and overcome various hardships that I thought would end with me but ended up not even getting close to bringing me down. Success to me isn’t something material, success is not something others should define for me, I get to say if I think I’m successful or not. He says I’m delusional for having big dreams and believing that life can be great if you follow your aspirations and enjoy the moment. Whenever I talk about it he says “you sound like a 5yo writing an essay on her dream world” such comments make me feel bad and sometimes I lose faith in myself because of it. I’ve always been called delusional, all my life people have told me that I dream too much and have too much imagination, that I should be more realistic and come out of my little bubble cuz the real world will never work like that. Is it wrong that i don’t want to face this so-called reality?? sometimes I wonder if they’re right? But i don’t want to think they are bc then this life would be horrible and not worth living. I don’t want to believe that, and I don’t but idk.
