Should we care what people think?

Hi again,

I’m not really sure where to go with this post, but it is something I need to get off my chest to you guys. A bit of a disclosure before you read on – this may get a bit personal and isn’t as ‘positive’ as some of you may want so if you don’t want to read on, please go and check out some of my other more light hearted posts. Recently, I heard someone’s views on a situation in my life and although it was meant in a joking manner, I took it a little but more to heart than I probably should of.

Everyone has their own opinions on anything in life, which I totally respect, don’t get me wrong. I think I struggle when people choose to have an opinion on situations in my life which aren’t necessarily true or accurate. The though of ‘rumours’ spreading about me, my life or people that I love, which aren’t true makes me kind of mad. I am probably the most honest person and I know I have no issues with people confronting me with things which they want to talk about with me – in fact I much prefer people coming to me to talk rather than asking other people who have no clue. If I am going to give honesty, I much prefer it back!

General personal opinions that people have (like on make up, hair or anything more trivial) really isn’t an issue to me, before people take this the wrong way. I respect everyone’s thoughts and views and enjoy engaging in discussions with people about these things. I like to find out from people their views and thoughts on situations and understand that they can differ from mine but I can learn from them. I am open to opinion. It is just when it comes to people whispering about my life when they no longer have a clue about it, really bother me for some reason. Do you ever get this feeling?

I am frequently told that I should not be bothered by what people say or think about my life and that myself and the people that matter to me, know what is going on in my own life and that’s all that maters. I totally understand this but just wish it was as easy to do as it is said. I have quite a hard exterior to most things but when situations get personal it’s different. What are your thoughts on if we should let what other people think or say bother us? What are your ways of coping with people’s opinions of you?

This may not have made much sense because I am babbling but I needed to get it off my chest and I though some of you would be able to help me get some light, so please comment below!
