We are unique souls who have chosen to have physical body on this world to have life experiences and learn lessons which shall make us a better soul in our next incarnation. This life journey is our own and has nothing to do with others. Others have journey of their own about which we are not concerned.
We should make our decisions ourselves about our life and our goals but in real life most of us are guided by the opinions of our near and dear ones and friends. What will people think of any action of our’s becomes the deciding factor in our decision making. We fear taking independent decisions against people’s opinions. By succumbing to this we lose our individuality in turn losing our purpose in life. Remember that at soul level , our journey in life is solitary and we have to decide our own destiny. You have to learn to make your own decisions guided by your intuition to chart a course of your own learning to ignore those people who want you to take their path.
The greatest fear in the world is of the opinion of others. The moment you are unafraid of the crowd , you are no longer a sheep, you have developed into a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom , the freedom to chart your own course in life into the unknown possibilities.
