The biggest barrier to someone not fulfilling their passion and dreams is another person. It is common for someone to add input that is hard to listen to because you feel like you are being made fun of. A person may ridicule the idea, think it is silly, and much more. The last thing you need to listen to is an outside opinion if it is negative.
If you have a passion you need to surround yourself with supportive people. Someone who is not supportive is not who you want around because they will only bring you down. That is, if you let them.
Many people have a spouse that is not supportive of a passion because they think the idea is ridiculous or they would be embarrassed of what your passion is. This type of person you don’t need around you. If you are making a decision of your spouse over your passion then you are restricting yourself. It is important to make it clear to your spouse that you are passionate about doing something in particular and they need to be supportive of you.
When you have the right support you can do anything. When family members are not supportive emotionally then it can make things difficult. The best thing you can do is let them know you are fulfilling your dreams and they will not stand in your way. It is your life and you need to be satisfied with it when the time comes. People who are not supportive you may have to shut out for a while until they see that it truly makes you happy.
