I Care Way Too Much. How Can I Stop

I care so much about what others think of me it scares me. In fact I right now I am caring about what one person thinks of me so much it is driving me crazy. I feel like I have made her mad although i know in my head I have done nothing. But because of my anxiety/depression I feel like I have. I don't have many friends, so maybe I am wanting her acceptance because she is the closest thing I have to a friend. But I have been dreaming all night, and thinking all day about this. About if she is mad at me or not. If she is talking about me behind my back or not. What she thinks of me. I need to stop. How do you do that? I feel crazy and alone.

I do that too. I have to tell myself and listen to this because it's not an easy thing to do but I keep doing it till it works.
What other people think about me is NONE of my business.
Please read it X5.
Read it till you get it.
Because only what you think of you is important.
Some will like you but some won't. So what?
You won't die because someone doesn't like you and you can't please everybody all the time.
You will just wear yourself out and be exhausted!

work on your self esteem theres lots of workbooks, books and stuff on the internet. Its ok for people to be important to you, but if you think its overmuch you may need to work on the esteem thing.
