Elizabeth Gilbert in her book Big Magic wrote:
“A clever, independent, creative and powerful woman in her mid-seventies offered me a superb piece of life wisdom. We all spend our twenties and thirties trying so hard to be perfect because we’re so worried about what people will think of us. Then we get into our forties and fifties, and we finally start to be free, because we decide that we don’t give a damn what anyone thinks about us. But you won’t be completely free until you reach your sixties and seventies, when you finally realize this liberating truth – nobody was ever thinking about you, anyhow.
They aren’t. They weren’t. They never were.
People are mostly just thinking about themselves. They don’t have time to worry about what you’re doing or how well you’re doing it, because they are caught up in their own dreams.
Go be whoever you want to be then.
Do whatever you want to do.”
