Thanks, Vico. I agree, that’s a really tough part I’ve had to deal with, too.

For me, a large part of it is realizing I’m on a different path — I’m committed to personal development (reading books, waking up early to write, staying present, working on my character defects) and a lot of friends and family just aren’t on that path right now. Which is fine, but that means moving ahead without them in some areas, and that can be hurtful if done in the wrong way.
