Sometimes you will meet people whom would try to bring you down in some way. You need to know that people who deliberately try to bring others down having that aim in life won`t come anywhere. If you have friends like these than please change your friends. It`s not worth it. In the long run they`ll never be happy for your success and try their most to say something hurtful. Don`t share anymore than a hello or hi with them.. 

I like this saying by Mark Twain:

Keep away from people who try to lower your ambitions. Small people would always do that. Great people would make you believe that you can become successful as well.

Allah hum sab ko humesha achein doston ki mehfilon mein rakhein. Ameen sum ameen 🙂
