Play your own tune and don’t worry about the criticisms of others. Many around you can’t see the work you’re putting in. And that’s ok, they don’t need to. You have satisfied your own conscience and gotten the job done. Anyone that expects more than that must look at their own plate and focus on what they need to do. Stick to your plan and your path will ride out the little bumps and take you to your goal without greater hardship.
It’s easy for others to criticize than for them to look at their issues. But just because they throw in their two cents doesn’t mean you have to listen to them or take in what they say today. You know how hard you’ve been working and even though you haven’t been telling others about the long hours, those who are important to you have noticed. So don’t change your tune, it’s your music to play and today the only person you need to satisfy is YOU.
