How to deal with pressure from friends, family & society to hurry up and get married, get laid, have kids, get a girlfriend, start a family, have a relationship, etc. so you can tune them out and start to live your own truth and find your own path in life that makes you happy. “You can’t base your life on other people’s expectations.” ~ Stevie Wonder.
In this video coaching newsletter I answer an email from a guy in the Balkans whose family and friends are giving him shit about not being married since he’s in his early 30’s now. He wants to take his time to play the field for a while, discover what he wants and eventually find the right girl to settle down with. His goals and values are not aligned with the expectations of those closest to him.
“He who is not satisfied with himself will grow. He who is not sure of his own correctness, will learn many things.” ~ Chinese Proverbs.
