Good story Your appreciated.....God bless you...:)

It is hard *not* to think something. A better approach, I think is it to turn your focus *outward*. Use your natural curiousity about what other people are thinking, but ask a different question. Don't ask "what do they think of me?", which is selfish, self-centered and arrogant. Instead ask yourself "what do they think of *themselves*?" and "what are they worried about within themselves". This replaces a selfish attitude (it is really... wondering what the world thinks of *you* all the time - is any one person *really* that important?) with one of humility and openess :)
