NEVER EVER APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR SUCCESS.
True story: In my last long-term relationship, my partner couldn’t handle the way I was trolled on the internet. Apparently my getting harassed was too much for him. (????)
What it really came down to was my success - the meat of it - was that I was doing really well in my career and he felt like shit about it. Sure, the trolls were an issue - but it wasn’t the root issue.
He wanted me to stop writing about controversial topics (LOL) and be more convenient and easy for him and the world. The only thing that stopped was the relationship.
Never, ever apologize for your success. Don’t compromise your values for another person. Glow up, baby. Glow up.
