Freedom is like this; what people think of you is not your business, what people expect from you is not your obligation, what people perceive of you is not a fact, what people label you is not your problem, what people consider you is not your weakness.
And by people, it includes everyone else other than you. Yes your spouse, your parents, your family, your friends, all of them.
Freedom is like this; you rule your life and your life is floating above all of those silliness. That's all.
