Dreamcatcher VS. Dreamstealer

Society is always telling us who we should be, how to act, how to dress, and what to do with our futures. We live in a world where we are always trying to be people pleasers, caring about what others think of us or constantly trying to keep with the Joneses.
There are 2 types of people: Dreamcatchers & Dreamstealers. How we allow these people to effect us is important to becoming the best version of yourself and reaching your dreams. 

Dreamcatchers. No, not the Native American handmade kind. These are people who catch us and support us. Like the Native American kind, these people bring positivity to our dreams and goals. They filter all our bad thoughts and lift us up. These people care for us whole-heartedly for who we truly are.

Dreamstealers. These are people that discourage you from achieving your dreams, making us feel guilty, bad, but most of all small. They take the sparkle out of us. If you think you have a Dreamstealer in your life look at this exercise

Allow the negative people to fuel you, not discourage you. Prove them wrong. Take what they say and let it ignite a passion and a drive to reach your goals and dreams. Control your reaction to what they say by letting it bounce off you. I know, easier said than done. But, truthfully this is the best life lesson I have learned. Many times the reason they push their limitations and views on you is out of control. When need to understand that we have control of ourselves and our lives. We should not want to be like someone else; we should want to be ourselves. 

Chase your dreams. No matter how big or small. No matter what people say.
