Everyone’s journey is different. Live your life and stop expecting it to be like others. Your life is lived on your terms and not on anybody else’s terms. Haters will be haters, let them be. Even if it can be difficult, let it be. Everyone has an opinion on everything. Everyone thinks they are en expert on anything. Well, no one else but you, is an expert on yourself. Don’t put any weight on opinions.
