Stop waiting to be invited into someone else’s sandbox, and do not be crushed if they don’t invite you to come in to play. Create your own and invite the guest who share your vision, support you, and you can trust. Not everybody is going to like you, and that’s ok.
Remember what they dislike about you, is not about you, it’s about them. Just be careful of the wolves in sheep’s clothing. If they enter your sandbox, you do have the right to say…the exit is to the left.
