Sometimes you need to accept the wisdom the universe is sending directly to you; telling you to try a new approach.
Healthy exercises in Detachment of soul with others might very well be the journey of a life-time for you. This might be the only time to re-acquaint yourself with yourself. You may even discover who you are for the first time. Detached emotionally and energetically from the baggage of others is what is needed here. No one is saying to stop cooking dinner or calling your folks every now again for a check up. On the contrary, social building stays on schedule as intended. The only difference here is that you detach all those energy cords to those in your social circle.
You aren't concerned with how others think or feel about you when you chose to embark on this mindful detaching.
You may ask for opinions here and there but that's out of curiosity for perspective.
You know your stubborn arse is going to endeavor to do things your way and in your style; simply to feel more alive in your own skin.
So be bold and know when its time to stop worrying and stressing over how others perceive you. We are often are best and worst critic anyway.
Ask yourself what you think on the matter? And every morning start training your brain through artful meditation to get back in touch with your own energy, not your folks, children, pets, hubby....just SIMPLY you.
