It’s human to want to be liked and accepted by everyone. However, worrying too much about what other people think about you will prevent you to live genuinely the life of your dreams.
If you struggle with caring about what other people think, this post is for you! You have the ability to reprogram your mind and change the way you think. You have the ability to live a life where you don’t live in fear of what people think/say.
You have no control over other people’s thoughts
The truth is, we have no control over what other people think about us. Other people’s thoughts and opinions about you have nothing to do with you. The opinion someone else has of you has only to do with that person’s thought patterns. Let them judge you but don’t make that mean anything about you, because it doesn’t. People will always judge, no matter what. Let them and go live your life.
You cannot please everyone
For example, I’ve started this blog and not everyone will like the content I put out here. I cannot please every single person that visits my blog. People have different opinions and interests. Not everyone will like what I do, it’s not possible. We cannot change other people, it’s out of our control. So, don’t try to be a people pleaser. When we pay too much attention to other people’s opinions of us, we lose a part of ourselves.
Surround yourself with positive people
Surround yourself with people who love and accept you for who you are. Stop hanging out with people who are always ready to judge you. Stay as far as you can from them.
Focus on your journey
Focus only on your dreams, and your goals. Stick to your values. Remember that you are you and you’re on your own journey. Be kind to yourself. Get focused on your self-care and take more time out for yourself. Understand there is more important stuff to worry about. You decide what is best for you. What people think and say about you tells more about them than you.
The world does not revolve around you
People are concentrating on their own lives and most of the time they are too busy to be watching and judging your every move. The world does not revolve around you and your world shouldn’t revolve around the opinion of others towards you. Make peace with the fact that people aren’t thinking about you anywhere near as much as you think they are.
Accept that some people will like you and other people won’t
We don’t have to like everyone. We won’t immediately bond with everyone. People aren’t always going to like you, no matter what you do. It might be for no particular reason, just a feeling or vibe they have. All nothing to do with you. Some people won’t like you and that is perfectly okay.
You have more important things to do
While you are worrying about what people think of you, you are wasting your time not working on your life, career, and dreams. You do not owe an explanation to anybody.
The only opinion that matters is the opinion you have of yourself. People will always judge. It’s up to you and your mindset if you’re going to let them get to you.
Have enough confidence in yourself and focus on your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. Life is so much better without the constant worry about what other people think.
