When you make a decision to change your life, you must be prepared to leave some people you use to hang with and places you use to go behind.
Once you decide that you are going to give up on all of your bad habits, you will then be measured by others around you as a “sellout”, “stuck up” or “wannabe”, and that’s okay.
When you have pledged to yourself that you will do something different with your life these folks will measure themselves and their lack of discipline to change as a way to envy you for your change.
Therefore, it is easier for them to call you names rather than change their bad behavior with you.
The name calling makes them feel empowered, oppose to facing the shame that they lack the determination to change who they are with you.
