This post makes me think that the general idea seems great (broadcast your desires/let people know what you want) but I couldn't help but disagree with part of the post.
When talking about the consequences of broadcasting desires to people who will not support you, Steve said:
"Say to such people, “I understand that you can’t accept my new direction, but I’m doing this anyway, so if you’re going to oppose me in this, then I’m going to have to drop you from my life. Either you learn to accept this part of me, or we’ll have to each go our separate ways and let go with love, okay?”
Well, I don't think surrounding yourself with yes people is a healthy alternative either. If you surround yourself with enough YES people, then you could lose all sense of perspective.
You NEED some people who are not afraid to be honest with you. If a friend of mine felt the need to do something I thought was unhealthy or harmful, you darn right I would say something, and I'd be a terrible friend if I just let them go without a fight.
Dropping people who disagree with you I think is bad advice all around. I've grown a lot from being around people who challenged me. Hasn't everyone?
