If it bothers the person to see you smile or have relief take a good look at what they are saying before you write them off.... They may not be hating..They may have seen some things that you haven't. It's better to listen with a healthy consideration but ultimately let God be at the core of your choices. Better to be smart than to regret having listened. Keep your joy..but be smart about what is really making you happy.
People with different perspectives reveal where they are coming from if you give them your ear. We are a community people. Don't be a loner in tough times. After you have heard them make your call whether they will be the influence that will navigate your life's decisions.
A good counselor can also help you find some important information about what you really want and how to get it.
