The more you care about what people think of you, the more you’ll be trying to live the way others want you to live.
The truth, however, is that you can’t live according to other people’s expectations, and if you try do so, you will always disappoint them, and end up disappointed yourself.
Moreover, if you live the way others expect you to live, you’ll achieve nothing but suppress yourself, filling your body and psyche with toxic energy that can result in all sorts of psychosomatic illnesses.
Only once you give up trying to live up to other people’s expectations, and instead learn to listen and trust your inner voice, as well as honestly express yourself, will you be able to live a meaningful, fulfilled life according to your values and ideas, free from the shackles of obligation and pretense.
