Live Your Life: 9 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Care What Others Think

Do you ever feel like the world is watching and judging your every move? Do you find yourself approaching social situations with a sense of dread, wondering what others might think about you? If this sounds familiar to you, then it’s time to stop. Living life according to how others may perceive you will only lead to more unhappiness than happiness. This blog post discusses 10 reasons why someone should not care about what other people think.

1. What People Think of You Shouldn’t Change Who You Are or What You are Worth

You are the only one who has to approve of your own life. It is not their life, and it’s none of their business. The opinions that other people have about you cannot change what you think or believe in, unless you allow them to. What people think about you can’t change who you are or what you’re worth unless they successfully manage to convince YOU that they’re right and get inside your head!

2. You Get What You Give: Taking Responsibility for Yourself 

Taking responsibility for yourself can be hard. It is a lot easier to blame or rely on somebody else or the circumstances around you, but that will never lead to any real change in your life. The only way you will ever learn anything and grow as a person is by making decisions and taking responsibility for them. Nobody is going to care more about your life than you will. That means only you know what’s best for you, and that means learning from your own choices – even if it means making mistakes and failing.

3. What Works For Someone Else May Be Completely Wrong For You

Do you know what works for someone else may be completely wrong for you? What does that mean? Well, it means that there is no one-size-fits all solution. It’s important not to rely on what has worked for others because everyone is different. We all have our own unique personalities, experiences, goals, and needs which we need to take into account when determining what’s best for ourselves. 

4. You Will Not Be Able to Achieve Your Goals and Dreams

It is easy to get caught up in the opinions of others.  You may not even realize that you are doing it, but if you’re constantly worried about what other people think of you and your decisions, then you will never get to where you need to go in life. Sometimes this means doing things that might not meet people’s standards or going into situations where there is a chance for failure. If you are too scared of what other people think, then when these moments come around, they will be harder for you because all the thoughts running through your head are holding back from making any decision at all.  Be brave enough to do what needs to be done!

5. You Are the One Stuck With the Consequences of Your Decisions

Take this scenario into note — a good friend of yours recently told you that you need to make a decision. He was telling you this because he overheard your conversation with someone else, and thought you were going in the wrong direction. And yet, you just couldn’t seem to get yourself to take his advice. You see, there are consequences that come from every decision we make in life—good or bad. When people give you their suggestions or even orders, there is no risk for them. They don’t have to live with your choices—but you do.

6. People Are Constantly Changing: Thoughts and Views Change

We may have different thoughts and views on a regular basis, but that doesn’t mean they matter. People are constantly changing, so much so that some philosophers believe we don’t even have one fixed ‘self’. This means no matter what somebody thinks of you in the moment, there is a good chance their opinion will change in the near future.

7. You Only Have One Life to Live: So Why Worry About Other People’s Thoughts?

We are all guilty of worrying about what other people think. We worry that our friends will judge us if we wear something, or say the wrong thing at a party. But why do we put so much thought into these things? Life is short, and you only have one life to live. So instead of spending your time fretting over what others might think, focus on living your life to the fullest without caring for anyone else’s opinion.

8. You’re Doing it Wrong: The Harm in Pretending to Be Popular

Have you ever wanted to be popular? I’m sure most of us have, especially when we were young and in school. However, as we grow older and learn more about the world around us, it becomes apparent that wanting to be popular is a fruitless endeavor. This is because popularity has nothing to do with how good a person you are or what skills you possess; it’s just about fitting into whatever group society deems “cool” at the time. The truth is that there will always be people who dislike you for no reason other than they’re insecure themselves. You’ll never win their approval so why waste your time trying?

9. Other People Don’t Think About You As Much As You Thought 

One of the most important things to remember about people is that they don’t think much outside themselves. It can be a sad thing, but it is also a simple truth: people filter their world through their ego and think about most things in terms of “me” or “my”. This means that unless you are who they care about or what you have done directly affects them, they will not spend any time thinking about you at all.

The Hard Truth: You Can’t Please All the People So Start to Take Care of Yourself Instead

The weight of other people’s thoughts can become a burden for you. It can inhibit you from living your life, because your entire being from your personality to your actions are controlled by an idealized standard of what people want to see. When you become so obsessed with other people’s opinion of you, you forget your own. 

You can make a conscious effort to stop giving; to let yourself free. It’s a skill that needs to be practiced, like meditating. But once you truly understand how to let go, you will see the world as entirely different. Once you give up catering to other people’s expectations and start following only your own voice inside-then everything around changes. You become free to be yourself.
