Kabir says: "Put all imaginations away, and stand fast in that which you are." Some find themselves on a rare spiritual path, and without much positive feedback or support from friends and family. And Sant Mat advocates an intoxicant free, tea-totaling, straightedge, vegetarian or vegan low-karma lifestyle also at odds with the mainstream. We are attempting to navigate our way through society while following the path, and doing the meditation practice, remaining faithful to it, living a spiritual way of life. The Masters say, "Be free of fear. Be free of anxiety. Follow the path no matter what. Perform Bhakti!" 
Studies in the Sar Bachan: With the teachings of Swami Ji Maharaj in his spiritual classic, the Sar Bachan Radhaswami Poetry, "performing Bhakti" means... to follow the path, stay faithful to, and mindful of, the teachings of the masters with love and devotion, doing the meditation practice, and not giving in to the negative influences that we will always be guaranteed to encounter: the adverse belief-systems, opinions and pressures from friends, family, co-workers, and society to not value the path and to not remain faithful to meditation practice. Everyone we meet seeks to pull us towards their beliefs, their state of consciousness, whatever that may be.
"Give up the fear and regard for the world. Fear not friend or foe. Heed what I say, perform Bhakti. It does not matter if your Bhakti is imperfect. Perform Bhakti. Radhasoami graciously declares that you should perform Bhakti in whichever way you can." (Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry)
"Resting in the protection of Radhasoami Dayal [the Merciful Lord of the Soul], one should give up all fears, worries, doubts and reveries. Relying on His mercy, one should become free from care and anxiety. It is only when one becomes care-free in respect of this region, that one will be able to perform Arti [meditation]. This is what the cushion of a care-free state means." (Discourses of Babuji Maharaj)
In Divine Love (Bhakti), Light, and Sound, At the Feet of the Masters, Radhaswami,
