I cut ties with naysayersMy decision really seemed to rub a couple of people the wrong way - they were almost offended that I had the audacity to leave my job to move to California. There was scoffing; there was condescension. One person (whom I didn't even know very well) called me stupid. I drew the line. I can take criticism about my choices, but when I saw the unfounded resentment my decision brought out in some people, they had to go. It was nothing personal, but I was already trying to accomplish something that has a low rate of success. I couldn't afford to incessantly hear about how my failure was inevitable.
