"Forget the world, and so command the world.
Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone's soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd." — Rumi
The more you try to please the people of this world - by blindly following them or ignoring your fitrah, instincts and intuition - the more troubling this world becomes to you. The moment you decide to be your own person with the intention of spreading good on this Earth and seek truth and happiness from the Source of all things pure, that's when the world starts to serve you in your journey towards Him.
