"People want to take your spot until they realize what it takes to play your position," the message read. The second post, from Instagram account @powerofpositivity, shared to her Story read: "Some people can't handle your level of awesome. That's okay. Just keep being you. There are people who can and will."
The TLC star also found some wisdom in a quote from TV powerhouse Shonda Rimes that read: "I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don't call me lucky. Call me a bada**."
The motivational messages from Mary come as she recently opened up about staying in the Brown family despite her broken marriage with the father-of-eighteen.

In the hit series' season finale, the Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage author revealed she previously tried opening up to ex-sister wife Christine Brown — who split from Kody, 53, last year — about her own marital woes and her decision to not leave the family behind, an effort that fell on deaf ears.
"I started realizing that she just wasn’t open to communication with me," Meri told host Sukanya Krishnan of Christine, 49. "And I just hoped that things were getting better … because I understand the rollercoaster in a relationship. I really understand that. I just was praying for her."
"I know that my goal and my purpose and my point is to just be a better person and to just look at the family," Meri added in the special. "Because there's value to that. There's value to this family that we've created."
Meri and Kody have been together since 1990 but divorced in 2014 so he could legally marry Robyn Brown and adopt her children from a previous marriage. However, their relationship has been strained since Meri's 2015 catfishing scandal, with the patriarch — who is also still married to wives Janelle Brown and Robyn — recently admitting he only sees their relationship as a "friendship."
