Never be afraid to make a change!
Sometimes its difficult to make cuts for fear of what people think or how others will judge! The truth is often the people that judge are the very people holding you back, you know your goal and what you need to do! You owe it to nobody too seek acceptance or make them happy!
To be happy you start investing in yourself then others will link with you! We all have to make cuts to progress it's better be lonely and happy than unhappy with lots of pretend people around you holding you down!
