You owe yourself a duty not to be distracted.

People stop complaining when you cease being a serious contender for what everybody around you is looking for: but as long as they perceive that you are a step ahead of everybody, they would continue to pummel you from all sides. That’s their duty and you have a duty too, to sidestep their planted mines while not taking your eyes off the cause of their anger with you. Doing that would cause you to fall and become a subject of worse gossip and ridicule.
