Do you care what “they” think? Who are “they” anyway? They can be your parents, your spouse, your partner, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, your religious community, your professional community, and even strangers on the internet. “They” are the collective, which is interested in keeping the status quo. When we tune into what “they” think, and use their thoughts as our instructions, we step out of our own life-stream and begin living a life for someone else. If everyone lived their lives according to what “they” think, there would be no exploring, no discovery, no innovation. If you find yourself caring what “they” think, remind yourself that your sole purpose in life is to live as who you really are – a unique individual. And your job is to listen and live according to your authentic self and the indefinable spirit within you that provides guidance and inspiration.
