As you get older, you reach a point where you don't care what others think. Maybe family. Maybe close friends. But no others. Then you reach a point where you do not even care what they think. Finally, you reach a point where you don't even care what YOU think. This is known as the Bruce Keener Syndrome.

"Gentlemen . . . here is the truth: Enduring tedium over real time in a confined space is what real courage is. Such endurance is, as it happens, the distillate of what is, today, in this world neither I nor you have made, heroism. Heroism. . . . By which I mean true heroism, not heroism as you might know it from films or the tales of childhood. . . . Gentlemen, welcome to the world of reality – there is no audience. No one to applaud, to admire. No one to see you. Do you understand? Here is the truth— actual heroism receives no ovation, entertains no one. No one queues up to see it. No one is interested." David Foster Wallace, The Pale King
