For sure, some people will be uncomfortable or even angry when they see you have changed but then you open to a new world of new friends. These people will love you for the authenticity of who you are at your core and treasure your ever becoming, ever changing self…because you also treasure that in them. These are the friends you will have for life.
When you break the bonds of socialization and conformity, you have no choice but to become self-authoring. When you start getting really good at that, you can enter a higher realm of consciousness called self-transformative…that is where the real fun begins.
