I Don't Care What People Think of Me Anymore

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 196 People

    Sometimes

    Sometimes it does matter to me what others think, but I think I'm slowly (and thankfully) pulling away from what other people what me to be and do or think or how they want me to live.  Slow going beating my own path.

    And it is brilliant. Yesterday I went out with

    my best friend, and we danced. There was this guy, he seemed familiar to me. So I asked him "From where do I know you?" He said "We once went to the cinema together with S.!" So we started dancing. I just didn't think about what he would be thinking of me, we just laughed...

    Past Caring

    Almost Bullied To Death

    Its Cost Me Some Friendships

    I don't want to be surrounded with people who have no respect for me any more, because I believe in myself, just enough, to know that these kind of people don't really deserve my time. I like myself, with all my faults, with all my flaws, with all my quirks. And more and more...

    I Am Me

    I used to care what people thought of me.  I was teased all through school.  When I was in high school, I learned to not care.  I used to be very shy. I still am somewhat shy, but not like I used to be.  I am very comfortable with who I am, and no longer care...
