They’ll tell you it pains them to say so, but you have a right to know. They’ll pretend to be gentle. They’ll snicker. They’ll elbow a friend. They’ll pretend to be on your side. They’ll mock you. And they’ll roll their eyes pretending to be supportive. They’ll say, "sorry." They’ll tell you that you simply don’t have what it takes.
And they’ll be entitled to their opinion before ever entitling you to a chance.
And they’ll be wrong.
Carry on. No matter what anyone tells you. Because one day, they’ll say:
"The most extraordinary shock we’ve ever had."
