Every now and then we find ourselves in situations where society has a strong opinion about. That sometimes add additional stress on ourselves, which we could seriously do without. However, trying to avoid those situations is quite simply a waste of energy. Don’t forget, we all have a limited amount of energy therefore we need to be smart on how we deploy this valuable resource. The fact of the matter is that people will talk, regardless. The best you can do is to let them talk. As long as you do not pay them any attention and focus on what matters most, you are good to go. However, saying it is very easy but carrying it out, is a whole other thing. What we can do is to have a sit down with ourselves and be honest. Not with anyone else, but with ourselves. Know why you are doing what you are doing, really be clear about it. Do not have any doubts. Because the slightest doubt will open you up to negative inputs and that can really mess up your system. You do not want that. Communicating them out to others though, is optional.
