Everyone wants to be appreciated and loved. People want to be appreciated for what they do or for their intelligence. Others want to show their kindness or their natural ability to speak.
If everyone wants to be accepted, it can be very difficult to learn not to care what others think of them. Unfortunately, if you want others to love you as you want to be loved, you end up giving them all the power over you. You begin to rely on them for self-acceptance. Your opinion begins to play a crucial role in your success as a person. This is where the vicious circle begins.
Perhaps you’ve also wondered how you can’t let people get close to you. When you begin to believe that only other people’s opinions or impressions of you count, it becomes harder to tell you not to care.
If you want to be accepted, you end up losing part of who you are. If you keep worrying about what others will say, you will end up seeing only the reality they show you.
Stop right there.
You can’t keep living your life for others. On the contrary, there are ways to get rid of your worries and free yourself from what others think.
Focus on the essentials.
What is essential to you? If you focus on something you consider necessary in your life, you forget about everything else. Think less about what others say about you. Instead, look at the big picture. That way you can take the unimportant ones out of the spotlight.
Other people shouldn’t be so important…
If you care what others have to say, others don’t care how you feel. They say what they want to say, and that’s all that matters to them. If they express an opinion about your life, don’t take it too seriously.
Maintain an eternal perspective
If you wonder how you can stop thinking about something that bothers you, keep a timeless perspective. Will that person’s opinion of you still be important one day? One week? One month? One year from now? Probably not. Someone else’s opinion of you won’t be based on who you are or what you do. It’s based on your education, your behavior, your beliefs. What they think is good for them may not necessarily be good for you. Consider your own point of view. Be who you want to be based on your own point of view and allow yourself to go your own way.
No one else knows you better
People will always have their opinions about how you live your life, but again, they are not the ones who live your life. You may have their opinion, but you don’t have to listen to them.
Live your life and learn from your own mistakes. The best way to learn how to survive is to live your life.
