Why you should stop caring what people think

Caring what other people think will be the ultimate cause of unhappiness.


1. It steals your happiness and freedom.

It makes you feel self-conscious and wary of everything you do and that is no way to live a life.

Do you really want to be imprisoned by their expectations and opinions? Hold yourself back, change yourself, all for what? If there is one thing I’ve learned is that people will judge you no matter what. People differentiate, and it’s not our job to make them like us.

I caught myself hesitating to publish a blog post, because I was wondering- Will the people who view it, like it? Is it good enough? I doubted myself for a moment, but do you know what? I decided I like the post, it is good enough for me and I scheduled it for publishing. Which brings me to my next point.

2. You can’t satisfy everyone.

P.S this is my favorite actress. Who is your favorite actor/actress?

Most of us are raised to be people-pleasers, I know I certainly was in some aspects. People pleasing becomes a bad thing when you value their happiness over yours, people are responsible for their own happiness. It really isn’t your job to satisfy everyone and no matter what, there will always be someoen unhappy. Realise that you and every other person are in totally different worlds, you have different perspectives and you percieve reality different.

People Pleasing hides the real you.

3. It keeps you from your goals and dreams

We would rather do the things that we don’t necessarily want to do, just because it gains us approval. I hear many successful people say that their parents didn’t support their goals, that their parents had another goal for them at the time and were against them becoming an actor/actress, comedian, gamer, singer ect.

What do all those successful people have in common? They didn’t care that no one supported them, that no one approved of their dream. They took risks. They simply believed in themselves.

4. They don’t know what’s best for you

Only you can decide in life what’s best for you. Only you can decide if you’ve made the right choices. Do you want to care so much what people think that one day you look back and realize you’ve done nothing that you actually wanted to do?

It’s your life live it your way. They had/have their chance in life. Life is simply too short to live your life according to them and their expectations for you.

5. Opinions change constantly anyways

A person can suddenly hate you and then like you and vice versa, so why even bother? If they like you or don’t, let ’em be. Once again, you can’t satisfy everyone.

Thanks for reading and remember to be you to the fullest. Approve of yourself. Love yourself. Be kind to yourself. Motivate yourself. Set your own expectations. Have goals and dream big.

Sorry for the age inappropriateness, but I just love this quote🔥

  4. My pleasure! I used to really self conscious about myself and my decisions for myself. And now, I care less what people think of me. I realized when I’m with people, I don’t make observations about them, so that’s when I knew people wouldn’t make observations about me either.

  6. No person can be down with everything *&*all-right with everybody. It isn’t what people think about you good or not so good, but it’s what you think about yourself that counts!

  10. “You can be most sure of anything except People.” _-Van Prince
    The moral of that Quote is: Some people will love you, some will like you,some will hate you,*&* still many love themselves so much until they don’t have room for others. What people think of you is personal to them, and some will speak good of you and some will speak ill of you, a few will praise you in your face *&* too many will talk about you behind your back, but when people speak highly of you its positive, *&* when people speak ill of you its negative of you so what. Accept the good compliments *&* strive to be more profound, *&* when some people speak ill of you then you are important or else they would use that time praising themselves which let you know you are making more progress than them!
