I Care Too Much About What Other People Think of Me

    Why do I do anything I do?

    Is it because it makes me happy? Is it because it makes me a better person? Is it because I want people to THINK that I'm happy and that I've got all my **** together? Well, if the last option were a binary option and you bought it pretty frequently, then you'd be deep in the...

    Sometimes I find myself caring way too much

    about what other people think of me. What should matter the most is the opinion I have of myself and if I have a positive view of myself then it really shouldn't matter what other people think of me.

    Over the last 2 days I have had a friends kids

    staying. In total I had 9 kids. She needed "me" time so I took them. I feel I did it as she is my only friend but she never takes my kids for any reason at all. I'm being used and I can't stop it.

    I care a lot about what people think about me

    and it hurts my feelings when people don't like me. Like it makes me want to cry and I wish I didn't care but I don't have friends I feel sad because I'm alone, so I always want other people to like me and want to be my friend

    I do care what people think of me.

    If people don't like my colored lipstick I remove it. Or eyeshadow look. I remove that off my face. I don't want to be talked about. I used to not care what people think of me. For some reason I do now. I can't wear a dress with sneakers like I always wanted to why not I don't...
