Did you ever feel

Like people are purposely trying to stall your progress, like they don't want you move forward. Why would anyone do that?

Maybe they feel that you're trying to progress at their expense. You can always go ask them to find out.

They don't call it that here, but absolutely a thing.
Nobody likes clever, and many people are jealous of talent and success.
Haters gonna hate. You get used to it, sort of.

Some people do what you describe from a place of deep insecurity and unhappiness. They are more interested in maintaining a shared sense of powerlessness (or power over you) than watching you soar.

We're bid against one another everyday like animals at a racetrack. You threaten someone. They're going to undermine your efforts.

People don’t like seeing their peers succeed. It has happened to me, when others try to shit on your progress. Here’s a little secret though... if you don’t let it affect you, and continue to shine, others will follow. I now try to surround myself with people full of love and positivity. They are out there, and just like me, they are rooting for you!
