It’s an all too common experience – worrying about what other people think of you. People fear judgement, worry that they won’t be accepted and feeling anxious about not being ‘good enough’. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Learning to not care what others think of you is an important step on the path to personal growth and contentment. It allows you to be truly authentic and to make decisions based on what you want, rather than on the opinions of others. Here’s three things that I always keep to the forefront of my mind and unlike years ago, I don’t care what people think of me now. When you change your mindset, you can change your life! The key is to take back your power.
- Recognise that you are the only one who has the power to decide how you feel about yourself. You are the only one who can draw the line between what is acceptable and what is not. Take a few moments to think about the qualities and values that you hold dear and remind yourself that these are what really matter.
- Remember that you can’t control the opinions of others. People are entitled to their own opinions and it isn’t your job to try and change them. For the most part, people’s opinions are filters or versions of reality, not pure or factual reality. They will see you and others based on programmes they have collected over their lifetime. So, if someone thinks bad of you, remember you are being viewed through a filter. It’s a little bit like wearing various colour tints on sun glasses; the reality is one thing, how you see it will vary based on the lens colour you are wearing.
- Remind yourself daily that what you can control is how you choose to react to the opinions of others. This is so important to do as a daily routine. It helps you understand that it is okay to disagree with someone’s opinion of you and to be comfortable with standing up for yourself. Be confident in your own beliefs and values and do not be afraid to share your own perspectives, respectfully.
At the end of the day, it is important to remember that we can’t control the opinions of others, but we can control how we choose to react to them.
