Avoid, if at all possible. It's the same with slapping a big ol' ball and chain to your ankle. Your life becomes shallow, you loose intimacy and freedom is not really freedom any more.
Best option: do your best at whatever it is you are doing, and keep a shadow over your identity. People are envious. So if less people know about you, then less attention is directed at you. Thus you can lead a happy life doing whatever it is you want without being constrained.

It´s either that or being thought of as GOD by my wife. Bad weather, rubbish television programs, war in Afghanistan. To her it´s ALL MY BL**DY FAULT!
