You have an enemy around you at the moment and your softness might give them an opening to damage you. You need to disarm them before finding out their motives. You are becoming more conscious of what it means to be doing what you're doing. What does it mean, philosophically, to be in the line of work or study that you are in? What is your role in the world? You're becoming wiser and more aware, and developing a stronger sense of purpose. Your desire to try new ways of doing things may be out of step with your relatives. It's best not to talk about what you're doing, but rather let the results speak for themselves. Someone in your peer group is demanding, and this is pushing you further and further away. For fear of jeopardising your relationship, you are not being honest. Speak your mind.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” ― Leo Tolstoy
