Here is some wise advice I received today:
Some people are not worth your efforts to show them your value; if they can’t see it for themselves, that is their misfortune, and loss.
I’m resolving not to waste any more of my time trying to prove myself to certain people in my life. Why work so hard to show them what they should already be able to see for themselves? I will leave those people behind and try to move on, speak my truth, and be my authentic self. I have learned from my mistakes and have no regrets for my actions.
