It never smooths out.
The goal cannot be to eliminate all problems.
This is not a realistic possibility.
There will always be problems and challenges that loom large.
Someone will put unrealistic expectations on you.
Someone will misjudge your intentions.
Especially if they don't know you.
Instead, focus on growing yourself and your ability to stay above the fray.
Don't let the bullshit steal your energy.
The goal is to grow your network.
Because the more relationships you have,
the more support and benefit of the doubt you gain.
Don't be discouraged and distracted by the challenges.
Let them fortify you.
