Fear of criticism.
Many people can not live their own lives because of their fear of criticism. They permit relatives, friends and public to influence them so much, that it will not allow them to live truly free.
Many people make mistake with choosing a wrong partner or wrong career and go through life miserable and unhappy because of fear of criticism which might follow if they try to correct the mistake. They rather live their lives in the name of “duty” that relatives or society imply on them, rather than try to change the course and direction to live happy and fulfilled life pursuing their dreams and desires.
Anyone who has ever experienced fear of criticism knows the damage it does, how it kills ambitions, desire to achieve and live in the freedom of mind. People don’t take the chances with new business opportunities, they don’t set their goal too high because of fear of criticism especially from relatives and friends. Anyone who has been there, has done it, knows what it took him to overpass it. How much time they have wasted and how much effort it took for them to finally make a decision and free themselves.
MAKE YOUR DESIRE FOR SUCCESS BE STRONGER THAN YOUR FEAR OF CRITICISM
I remember when I was about to leave my husband of almost 15 years, going away to live with our three young kids. Different country, different lifestyle, new job, different everything, with no one to turn to. My family was so unsupportive of my decision, they almost disowned me. Vain were my cries for help.
“You can’t do it, you got married in church, you should be happy having a roof over your head, you are taking kids away from their familiar environment, what about your husband, he is a good man, you are the crazy one, never happy, it is all your fault your marriage is falling apart”… gosh, I heard it all.
But despite their useless talks and opinions that I wasn’t interested in or took them in consideration, I did it my way anyway. I pursued my dreams and ambitions to provide a better future for me and my three children. To give us all better chances.
I could have stayed and continue playing a happy family, devoted wife, or more like a martyr, keeping everyone around me happy, I could have stayed and live in a merciful lie. No shames, no criticism, no high eyebrows, no hardship of being totally alone to my destiny.
But who would benefit from it? My father? My sisters? My grandma, any relative at all??? They have their own lives to live and pretend, their own lies and conscience to take care of.
Nobody. Nobody would benefit from it let alone me myself. And certainly, my beautiful children wish and deserve to see their mother happy and smiling rather than constantly pissed off and stressed.
I had to overcome the fear of criticism fast or stay put. And I wasn’t going to stay put in my comfort zone which was rather very uncomfortable. And once doing it felt so liberating, empowering and great. So hard too, but very rewarding. The journey I decided to take taught me a lot about myself and my capacities, showed me my true self and also the true face of my relatives and friends.
You don’t know your family and friends till you need a help or support, you don’t know them till you start your own business. And I chose to truly know them and leave the fear of criticism aside. I chose real FREEDOM, surrounded by like-minded people who help me on my journey of self-development and entrepreneurship. And I believe that’s the way to be.
