Why you shouldn't care about what people think

There is always going to be that one moment where a person gets to you, maybe because they said something about you that came across as if they were judging you or maybe they just had to look at you. Everyone says this but it has truth behind it, you should not care about what other people think. 

Personally, it is hard to not care because if you are like me and you always feel anxious or paranoid around people that you may not know as well as others. However sometimes you have to just go with the flow and not think too much, this is because the more you think the more problems you create for yourself. - it's all in the mind. 

When I was little I cared a lot about what people thought of me, because of this I would not eat in public places or I would not eat in front of people, if my mum ever forced me to eat I would only eat a little bit because if I ate a lot I thought that I would be seen as fat. Moreover as I got older I did learn to deal with this and now I can eat in public places, however I am still coming to grips with eating in front of certain people. 

You don't have to overcome this thought or fear straight away, you have plenty of years to learn and grow so do not rush it. It is okay to feel insecure, you cannot always have your guard up because it could all come crashing down in one go and you would be the only one hurt in result of this. 

Furthermore, my reasoning for not caring about what people think is this: what they dislike about you will never affect them, you will not be in contact with them in the future, their thoughts do not matter no matter how badly it hurts. 

Ultimately, I believe that if everybody likes you, you are doing something wrong. This is because you cannot pelase everybody and if you are being yourself you are always going to get the opposite reaction from others e.g. People will either like you or dislike you. You have to remember that no ones a saint or an angel, we all have traits that may annoy others even if you want to be liked by everyone, it's not a possibility unless you're acting and playing nice. - Everyone sees the truth in the end. 

In a perfect world no one would judge or be negative, although we don't have a perfect world we have to therefore find a way to deal. Do you believe in the quote "if everybody likes you, you are doing something wrong"?

Always supporting and voting for you.

  4. It is human nature to want to be liked and accepted. However, this often leads to people worrying too much about what others are thinking about them.

    This kind of excessive worrying can have a negative effect on your life. It can be so debilitating that it interferes with your ability to feel at ease with yourself and around others. Do not let it prevent you from living your life to the fullest potential.
