You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing.
Don’t we all live like that? We constantly worry about what our family, friends, and other people around us are gonna think about us. We spend our short lives living according to their ideas so that we’re not left out. But isn’t that the real cause of our sadness?
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.
Most people care what other people think to some extent. However, if you are a “people pleaser” who needs external validation throughout the day it can be tough on the job and in relationships.
In order to find happiness and self confidence consider some ways that will help you to accept yourself and find validation from ins. Internal validation means you find answers with introspection. People who are internally validated know how to like themselves. They don’t need outside approval to feel happy. Super successful people do not worry what their critics have to say good or bad because they know how to find confidence and security inside not externally.
Team Inspiring Life provides you with 5 reasons to stop caring for what others think about us.
5 reasons to stop caring for what others think about you.
1. Life Is Simply Too Short.
You only have one life to live, so why would you spend it worrying about other people’s opinions? Do whatever you want, be whoever you want. You’re not going to see these people after you’re dead. You probably won’t even see them in a year from now. Live your life without worrying about other people’s thoughts and opinion, and you will live your life to the maximum.
2. It’s Not Their Life, So It’s None Of Their Business
People are entitled to think whatever they want, just as you are entitled to think what you want. What people think of you cannot change who you are or what you are worth, unless you allow them to.
This is your life to live. At the end of the day you are the only person who needs to approve of your own choices.
3. Will Keep You From Your Dreams
If you are constantly worried about what other people think, you will never get to where you need to go in life. You are going to have to do things that don’t always meet people’s standards. You will come into situations where you have to put your pride, and your reputation on the line to get what you want. If you are constantly worried about what people are thinking, you will never have the will to do what’s right.
4. Others Don’t Care As Much As You Think
People generally don’t think outside themselves a great deal of time. It is a sad but simple truth that the average person filters their world through their ego, meaning that they think about most things in terms of “me” or “my”. This means that, unless who you are or what you have done directly affects another person or their life, they are unlikely to spend much time thinking about you at all.
5. It’s Impossible To Please Everybody
You can’t please all of the people all of the time. It is impossible to live up to everyone’s expectations so there is no point in burning yourself out trying to do so. Just make sure that one of the people you please is yourself!
