There will be those who will rejoice with you if and when you choose to go and live your best life. Yet many more will envy you for having the courage to do this. For many people, whether they admit it to themselves or not, there will be jealousy, lots of jealousy. With this being the case, you will need to start to care little for what others think of you and place yourself in the position of answering to no one, only to yourself. You will have to accept that what others think of you is none of your business.
Often, the fear of potential loneliness, rejection and ridicule can be too much for some. Better they do not rock the boat (a sailing term used by the captain to describe keeping things the way they are), as it seems much safer to do nothing and to stay living the life they have. Now, many of our storytellers talk of the loneliness they felt on going to pursue the life they were born to live. At the start, there was sometimes unbelievable loneliness and a genuine fear of never being part of anything again. For so many, this is often the point at which they falter. They struggle so much with the loneliness that they find it impossible to keep going and they return to their old life. The journey towards seeing their dream life become a reality seems just too much. The thing is, hard as it may be, this sort of loneliness is normal at the start of setting out to live your best life.
Now, this is not about pursuing your desires in a narcissistic sense. Whatever your goals, you will need to take into account, as best you can, your family, friends and relationships. But when you stop worrying about what everyone else thinks of you, there’s no longer any need to try to be perfect all the time. Being concerned about what others think of you and striving to be perfect will no longer be enough to keep you from living the life you were born to live.
