I Care About What Others Think of Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 107 People

    It Makes A Difference

    I care, most assuredly, about what impression I make on others. But at the same time, I'm not going to let anyone walk all over me like blacktop on a street. I had three replies to my Proud To Be An American posts. I was trying to point out to those who say they hate America...

    Don't We All?

    I mean, it would be nice to be one of those people that "claim" that they don't care about what others think of them, but taken to the extreme, wouldn't they just be sociopaths? I exaggerate of course, but it would be nice to have some kind ego-insulation against the rest of the...

    It Really Matters

    I am constantly being evaluated, but I constantly fail the test.

    What You Think Of Me

    If I did; I would have committed suicide a long time ago.  By me still being here, proves something.  In other words, people can judge me, criticize me, bring me down, make fun of me...I know who I am and if you don't like it...then it is your problem.  I haven't done or said...

    I just that I have always struggled with this.

    My hubby does care what others think and I totally admire him for it. My successes and failures really goes right to my heart. My husband can get all types of awards and not even give a **** and when he criticized he listens but it does not go to his heart. I get so depressed...

    What I like about drinking is that

    after a few drinks I don't care about the critics. They say I drink too much, I eat too much, beer has too many calories, I shouldn't wear this, I should wear that. They all get quieter and disappear to nothing: both those voices outside and those inside my head.

    Too Much....

    I am obsessed with what people think of me. I worry all the time that they are saying negative things about me behind my back, that they think I am lazy,look abnormally young, too shy, standoffish or nervous. I worry that they would judge me if they knew that I am 25, the eternal...

    Ha

    I'm one of those people who say "I don't care what people think about me" when in reality, a lot of things really kill my self esteem, which i'm already lacking. I put on a real tough front to avoid letting people know it's harmed me, because i will never give anyone...

    Right before all my New Year’s Resolutions

    kicked in, I was at my local fast foodery. There was a new cashier. He was a young big Asian guy with a round doughy face. When I came to the front of the line, his mouth dropped as he stared at me. And by “me,” I mean my chest. He said, “you don’t mind if you ask me...
