Your journey is yours, their journey is theirs.
I find the more centered I am, the more secure I am in the knowledge that I am on the path I need to be on at this moment, the less anyone else's actions or reactions can impact me.
I don't need to make another "wrong" in order for me to feel "right" and I won't allow another to do that to me. Refusing to accept someone's demands that I do so isn't unloving to them, it is instead loving to myself and perhaps even setting an example that helps lend the certainty of purpose to another.
My journey has taken some long and winding roads as I'm sure most people's have; at many points along the way I'm sure others wondered if I was ever going to "get it" as well
