    I think this is something a lot of people do.

    We expect too much from ourselves and need to please everyone. Even strangers I see on the subway, I care what they think of me. I realize this is unhealthy and I'd be happier if I could accept that not everyone will like me, but I don't know how to change my behavior and stop...

    Well Depends....

    It depends on who it is and what kind of relationship I have with them....For instance I care entirely too much what my teachers think of me and I do as much as I can to make them like me!however I don't care enough what my family thinks of me and I often disappoint them:(

    Missing Out On A Good Guy

    One of the things I hate about myself is that I care too much what others think of me. This sick thought has driven many of my decisions, actions, feelings. The worst part is that it also drives my emotions and what I allow myself to feel. A year ago I met this really nice guy...

    I Care Way Too Much What People Think

    I tend to say some pretty dumb things. Sometimes I tell people a little too much, or a little too little. And most of the reason I do this is because my social skills arent too good. I used to let this problem keep me from talking to people. Though these days...

    I Care...

     I care too much what others think of me and I'd sometimes do things I don't like just to please them in hope they will think good of me. It's because I hate being judged and criticised. Am getting nervous in simple social situations because am scared of making an idiot out...

    I let it get to me. It controls what I post on

    social media (which i deleted) it makes me second guess on who to hang out with at school, the clothes I wear to school, what music is listen to, what I get involved in and what I don't. I really want to stop caring about what they think, but as for now I can't.

    Don't Like Doing Stuff

    Even if it just me walking down the street, I will change the way I walk or which way I am looking if I think that the person who sees me thinks I'm weird. I don't do a lot of things because I am afraid of mass judgement. Not that anything's ever come of it...I am a judgemental...
