Scary Reason No 3 not to pursue your creative path:
Having to say ‘no’ to all the social life stuff (and the hidden sub reason – not actually having the discipline to control your fomo)
This is probably not so much a scary reason or legitimate internal creative fear as a vapid reason your ego manufactures as a reason because the previous reasons are too scary to deal with.
Luckily the daily implementation of pursuing your creative path will, in a weird way, solve this hesitation one for you. You soon won’t have the funds to splurge on your social life.🤣
And no bucks in the bank essentially forces you to have the self-discipline to say no. 😂 You quickly realise what’s essential. But there’s no way around it – pursuing your creative path can be a fairly lonely road to walk. Don’t think of it as killing off your social life – you’re just mummifying yourself for a while. At some point, you’ll be able to unravel your cocoon again. The hibernating internal transformation will all have been worthwhile. And true friends will understand. 🙏🏼
