Everyone's definition of success is different and just because someone else doesn't understand you and your goals does not mean that they are any less important and worth of your time. Success does not come quickly, its takes time and you appreciate it more in the end. Do not let anyone make you feel like what you think, feel or are is any less worthy than what they think or feel you should be. Press forward and pick yourself up after each hurdle that is put in your way. It just means that the more you overcome, the more successful you will be one day. And remember, success does not always equal money.
