What other people think of you is none of your business. I don’t remember where I saw that, where I read it or who said it. However, I want to say it’s something influential and wise because it’s just a great saying that sounds both influential and wise. What other people have going on in their minds is not your business. It’s not my business, either. However, most of us spend far too much time worrying about what others think of us when in reality – it doesn’t even matter. As long as YOU are happy with YOU, then what I think doesn’t matter. Here are three ways to help you stop caring what others think of you now.
You’ll Never Know What they Really Think
It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you’ll never really know what others think of you so why even bother trying to figure it out? You will not please everyone in life, which is just a fact. But guess what? No one else will manage to accomplish pleasing everyone in life either. We are all going to have people that dislike us, that think we’re idiots, that want us to fail. It’s a fact of life and the faster you realize that it’s true for everyone, the faster you’ll find yourself caring less.
Understand Most People Don’t Care
When you realize that most people aren’t actually thinking about you in the first place, you’ll find it easier not to care what they think anyway. It’s a waste of time to spend time concerned with what other people think when they’re probably not even thinking about you in the first place.
Understand Their Opinion Doesn’t Matter
What do you have to gain by impressing others and obtaining their approval? Seriously; what do you have to gain? You worry so much about what you say and how you look and how you come across but at the end of the day, what difference does it make if someone likes you or they don’t’? It doesn’t add anything to your life.
