So you should live it. Your life that is. I've heard many times, "Well what if so-and-so thinks x-y-z." Unless they are your spouse, it most likely really doesn't matter. If you spend your life trying to live the type of life you think others believe you should have, in the end, what kind of a life is that?
Do the things you love and enjoy.
Be good to people - treat them the way you want to be treated.
Live your life - don't play the "I'll be happy when...." game.
