When you grow up, it's ALL about what people think:


I know what you are saying, which brought to mind everything from interviewing to striving for personal, professional growth. The other area where I don't ever stop being conscious of what people think, is family. I'm the youngest of six, so maybe it's easy to always be looking within the family to see what they think.

On the other hand, I do respect having confidence and an independent spirit - as likely many of the commenters possess above.

When I moved to another city. Everyone there was so superficial that I realized that I didn't give a shit about all that stuff. I really don't care about what others think of the people I love, at least while it stays in their heads because I won't let anyone say anything bad about the people I care about

The older I get, the more I realized that I had to stop thinking of what people thought of me and just learn not to give a shit.

When I was in junior high I was made fun of a lot for being different, and it hurt but after a while it didn't hurt as much, you just kind of become numb to it. But even though I was numb to it, it still hurt ya know. I think ever since I had kids and got married to someone who is just as strange as I am that's when I learned that I really don't care what anyone thinks of me. So what if I just walked out of the house wearing sweatpants and one of my many video game shirts. I have a husband who loves me for me and kids who couldn't care less what I wear or what my hobbies are. I think you kind of just have to look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you're the best the way you are and you don't have to change for anyone.

Did I ever cared? Nah, it's too much work trying to impress people. I realized my interests and tastes were different early on lol.

Don't remember... way too long!

Bonus

1- to kind of go through life not caring is a spectacular attribute, so you know what i think about them, (us)

2- The funny thing is, I'm so used to not caring what anyone says, good or bad, that unfortunately even when people say good things... I wish it made me feel good, but it doesn't. so don't know

Earlier this year, when I started getting senioritis really bad. It's hard to care about the opinions of others when 1.I will probably never see these people again after this June 2.It's difficult to be motivated about anything.

The end of High School and its drama.
The end of insecurities of what other people think about me.

A conservative couldn't post in this forum if they cared what others thought about them.
