  • What exactly is a ‘life passion,’ you ask?
  • Find common ground. One of the things that will make it easier for a family member to for you to find a connection between your passion and that family member. 2. Ask for understanding. Family members sometimes aren’t willing to accept change. Start by asking them to bear with you while you go through a transition. Even if they don’t understand you or your passion, ask for their full support and patience.
  • 3. Be understanding. Don’t let it upset you if your friends and family frown on your dreams. Let them know you hear their concerns, but you have to do what’s right for you. After all, you only live once!4. Do unto others. It’s not all about you so make sure you are supportive of others’ passions. It’s not fair to ask them to support you if you scoff at them. If you’ve ever criticized someone for following their dream, now is the time to apologize, tell them you are sorry and you completely understand.
  • 5. Include others, but don’t force them. Ask your friends and family to join you in a project, but don’t try to force their hand.6. Limit your conversation. Don’t waste your time talking to the uninterested. Wait for other people to bring it up. If they don’t, find like-minded people who will be interested in listening to you and helping you grow.
  • Find encouragement from a support group. Find a local social network to help you keep things in perspective if family members are unwilling to support your efforts.
