    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Once you stop caring what others think of you, you take a huge step to what is called freedom.
