As the years went by, I faced a lot of doubt. I had people tell me to my face that "writing isn't a real job" or "I'm not going to make it." I got ridiculed for pursuing my passions; by people I really respected or cared about. I got ridiculed on the internet. Even my momma told me that I wasn't going to make it. I lost friends because of my passion. I lost followers because of my passion. I lost partners because of my passion. That's all good though, I have such a strong belief in myself and the work I do that I can put all the shit you say about me to rest. I ain't stopping, so... keep on hating. Keep on not believing in Khali Raymond. You're going to regret it, I tell you dat!'
