Of course they won’t. It’s new, it’s different, it threatens the status quo. There will always be people who don’t like it. Asking, "What if people don’t like it?" is like asking if the sun is going to set tonight.
A better question to ask is, what if people do like it? What if your idea, your piece of work, your presence, made a positive impact for one person, 100 people, or one million people? What would you do if you knew some people were going to like it?
The cost that you pay for making a big difference through sharing something new is that some people won’t like it. You have to be willing for some people not to like it, in order for some people to be able to receive it.
If we waited for everyone to like everything we say, do, make or think, we would never be able to make anything new. Embrace the people who don’t like it, because that is part of the deal.
The new question is, when you share something that people don’t like, can you still be kind to yourself and them?
