life quotes

 Have you ever thought of something great that you would like to do, but no one seems to be supporting you? Maybe furthering your education, investing, traveling, starting a business, moving out of town, starting a relationship, etc. Yes, I have been there. It's normal for us not to get the support of family members and friends for many of the journeys that we will take in this life. There are those of us who are only used to being criticized by those who should be on our team carrying the banner but don't lose hope. If you are one such person, I would like to encourage you not to give up on your dreams because of a lack of support. Sometimes your biggest supporters are those who you have never met in your life. Do your thing, the right people will stand in your corner even if they are strangers.
