    At least I wish I didn't.

    Especially now that I'm dating the guy that I think is my "one" but he has a newborn with his ex and he doesn't have a degree yet and I'm so scared that others will think less of me because of it. I've accepted the situation and actually love my man more because of his devotion...

    It's not that I don't care.

    I don't let the opinions of others define me. If it's a constructive opinion then I reflect and grow from there. If a destructive one, I often find it's a reflection of their own insecurities. The only opinion important in my life, is my own. Love me as I am or move on.

    You don't mess with me,

    I don't mess with you. What people think of me means nothing, the only one who has an opinion that matters to me, is me.

    Why waste your time caring about what other

    I honestly don't care what people think of me,

    like come on this world isn't perfect, everyone has haters. If I'm happy for the way I look then I should continue doing what I like and just ignore those jerks who want to control people.

    The majority of us spend most of our lives

    trying to satisfy other people. I don't think you should care what others think of you, because you don't live for them. If they don't like who you are, the problem is theirs. You should be free to express yourself in whatever way you want, because your happiness is what's...

    It wasn't always like this. Not so long ago, I used to take words very seriously indeed. I was extremely sensitive to even mild criticism. A disparaging remark would send me into a downward spiral for the rest of the day, and I would spend hours thinking about. It had gotten to...

    I truly don't if you dont like me then you

    don't like me. If you have a problem with me, it's your problem not mine. I am open to work out the differences but I am not changing myself because of what you think of me.

    People Care Too Much

    Personally I think people care way too much what others think. If it makes you happy and doesn't hurt anybody in the process who cares? That's how I live life and it's the ones that try and make me care that hold me back from doing stuff I would enjoy.

    I don't care what others think of me.

    I'm always on my way to discover myself. I'm so much busy finding myself that I got no time to worry what people think of me. But once in a while I would like to know what they think of me as a feedback.

    I Don't Care What You Think of Me!

    If people think highly of me, it goes to my head. If they think poorly, it goes to my heart. After awhile, I just got too exhausted to care and have been much happier since!

    I learned not to anymore.

    You get fed up somehow and I was exactly in the same position. I used to care about what others thought of me, asked them how I looked or something like that, but I finally learned it was better not to listen and know how they thought of you after all. There would be people who...
