“No matter what choices you make, there will always be someone who does not agree with those choices, but as you find your balance and maintain your alignment, most who are observing you will be more inclined to ask what your secret to success is rather than criticizing you for being successful. And those who continue to criticize you would find no satisfaction in your justification, no matter how compelling your argument is.
It is not your role to fix the feeling of lack within others; it is your role to keep yourself in balance. When you allow your society, or even one other person, to dictate to you what you should want or how you should behave, you will lose your balance, because your sense of freedom–which is core to your very Beingness–is challenged. When you pay attention to the way you feel and you practice the self-empowering thoughts that align with who-you-really-are, you will offer an example of thriving that will be of tremendous value to those who have the benefit of observing you."
— Abraham, Esther Hicks
