One of the first things you might have to deal with when you decide to wake up and make massive positive changes in your life is disapproval from other people, especially those closest to you.
They may express their discomfort in all sorts of ways: anger, hurt, bafflement, criticism, snorting every time you talk about your new ventures. Constant remarks about how you are not the way you used to be.
Of course you aren't the same person!
You have moved past your fears!!
Keep your mouth shut and fire on all cylinders.
