Listen, I need you to be careful. Whether or not you know it, you are surrounded by assholes right now. To the left of you, to the right of you, and even a few behind you. The bad part is, they are disguised as people who care about you. They will wear the mask well, but you need to know, they are not on your team. They just play that role. The reality is, they just stay close because they are waiting with bated breath to see you fail. They want to be right there so they can remember what it felt like when that finally happened. Good news, though. I know how to handle those people, and it is easier than you think.
