Imagine if you didn’t cared about other people’s opinions about you. Won’t you feel free? Feel released? No one is judging you. Isn’t the thought so comforting and peaceful?
It is never too late to do what you genuinely want in life. People are impermanent, they are not always there to judge you for the rest of your life. Pay attention to your heart and do what you love but of course, be moral! If people constantly stalk you and criticise you, ignore them. If that’s their choice, you can’t do much about it so best to use that time to do what you really want in life.
