“Often when you make a major life change, friends are not supportive. In fact, they may even try to dissuade you from pursuing the new work. This happens because the friend is sometimes also wanting a change, but doesn’t have the courage or the energy to make it happen. Such a person resents anyone who is striving in a new direction.
It may be necessary to let go of some of your old friends if this happens. If you are struggling to learn something new and you have people around who are not only unhelpful, but downright negative about what you’re doing, then you need to really look at each and every one and decided if each is truly a friend. A true friend should be supportive.”
Nanette V. Hucknall, in “Finding Your Work, Loving Your Life”
