This topic has been on my mind all this week and I think is something that is important that I want to share.
I care way too much about what other people think.
Right now, in the USA, there is A LOT going on.
Since it is a democratic country, people are allowed to have different opinions.
That is something that is great about this country.
The freedom of speech.
People can say whatever they want to say and they will not get punished for it (except for like harassment and bullying).
My own personal issue is that I care way too much about what other people think.
Both of me, and if their opinion is different from mine.
I wish I could honestly and truly say “I don’t care what other people think” or “I don’t care what they think of me”.
BECAUSE I DO.
I am trying hard to work on it and to combat those negative thoughts and feelings, but it’s hard.
It seems like right now I become extremely disappointed when other people have a different opinion than me.
I really don’t want to go into too much detail about what opinions I am talking about because I will end up getting fired up all over again.
I am trying to find ways to recognize that someone has a different opinion than I do, and I will just leave them alone and it is none of my business what they think!!
Maybe this post will just seem like a long ramble, but it is truly how I feel.
I just need to find ways to be less involved in other people’s thoughts and opinions.
That is all.
Just trying to figure out how to be a positive person.
