Why You Shouldn’t Care What Other People Think

This post isn’t going to be that long as it is a moot point to give a damn about what others think about you. The real first step to doing so is treating everyone the same no matter who they are, this prevents favoritism and special treatment which gives weight to their perception of you and potentially rules your life. Treat everyone the same without exception and you’ll be one step closer to not caring what people think about you.

Refrain from judgment as judging people is untenable and makes no sense. Yes, you can judge someone’s character and discern whether they can be around you an not drag you into stupid shit. But, judging someone for how they live their life is moot as it makes absolutely no sense; you don’t know their circumstances and what they’ve been through, you don’t know the damages they’ve suffered growing up and you are in no way better than this person as a human being, get off your high horse.

Accept the fact some people are intelligent, some are ignorant, some are smart, and some are stupid. There’s no point in getting angry with someone that is only operating at the level they’re capable of, no matter how high or low. You’ll only give yourself headaches.

Eliminate toxic people from your life (this includes family), they do nothing but drag you through the nuclear waste known as their bullshit and you’ll never get anything meaningful done with the time you have on this earth. Besides, just because they are ‘family’ doesn’t mean you’re stuck with them for the rest of your life, it just means you’re genetically related to them. Nothing more.

Everyone eats, shits, sleeps, and works. Fundamentally we’re all the same as human beings albeit with different shades, facial structures, and cultures and languages. Everyone is trying to live a good life and has their way of doing things. Just because you’ve never seen it before doesn’t mean it’s wrong, it just means you’ve never seen it before. Try to open your mind.

Use these five things to elevate to a mindset that doesn’t care what people think. People try to shame you to cover up for their insecurities and shortcomings because they are afraid of looking themselves in the mirror. This has nothing to do with you. Yes, you are the main character in your life but the world doesn’t revolve around you, only your world revolves around you. Learn the difference between your world and reality and maintain that line. If you want to escape reality a bit, fine, it gets pretty fucked up out here. However, remember you have to come back at some point and continue the fight for a better existence like everyone else as you’re nothing special.

Be aware of your limits, work to surpass them, and live life on your terms.

Fuck what they think.
