...and can we learn to love criticism?
I looked up from my lunch.
"Tuna salad again?! Don't you get bored? I'll never understand you fitness freaks, just eat some cake"
Damn. I thought. I'm just eating my lunch.

^^ this is an all too familiar scenario when you're dieting
People feel an innate NEED to comment on your life
Especially when you're trying to eat clean
Suddenly you become a fitness FREAK!
This is unacceptable in other areas of life
Imagine if you walked into a construction site....
"Hey, so you guys are using new tools and improving buildings?
I'll never understand you builder freaks, just throw some damn bricks together!"
....methinks you'd have a tough time walking after they break your legs...
or let's say you walked into a library...
"Hey, so you guys like learning huh? You're trying to grow your brain and improve your life?
You absolute FREAKS! I can't believe it, just watch the TV like me."
....you'd have an encyclopedia to the head....
But for some reason, people can freely comment about what you eat, how you train or how 'realistic' your goals are.
WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
PEOPLE HATE BECAUSE YOUR POSITIVE ACTION HIGHLIGHTS A DEFICIENCY IN THEIR LIFE
PEOPLE HATE YOUR SUCCESS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TRIED AND FAILED
HATE AND CRITICISM TURNS INTO ADMIRATION (THEY WILL ASK YOU FOR HELP SOON!)
EVERY GREAT CHANGE IN THE WORLD HAS FIRST RECEIVED NEGATIVITY (for example, Martin Luther King Jr and the Black Civil Rights Movement)
Understand that haters are a sign you're doing the right thing.
