How Many

I’m pretty sure we have wondered about what someone might think. We all get there. The question is: What do you make of it? How do you move forward from this train of thoughts? Or why don’t you?

Why does it matter?

I always find it interesting to see how much value we give something that should not even enter our minds. I find it interesting to see that we all care about the opinion of a stranger at one point or another.

Hopefully we mature and realize that the opinion of a stranger is not important. It doesn’t matter what someone thinks of us that has never even met us. What matters is how people feel about us who truly know us. And the kind of character they have.

The people who are your real friends, your tribe, the people with value will not talk badly behind your back. They will describe what they like about you. What they cherish in your friendship.

Our life is much easier if we focus on what truly matters. If we look for quality instead of quantity…

  1. with every year, i care less and less for what others think/assume of me. i know that i always do my best to treat everyone with kindness and compassion and to do my best and i feel good about that.

  2. So very true, and how many friendships are changed forever because of a passing comment. The saying goes ‘If you can’t say something good about someone, say nothing at all’. Sitting on the fence gets painful after a while, so I tend to keep quiet.

  3. I’m definitely guilty of worrying about what others think of me, but I’m working hard to not have that self doubt quite so much. I’ve realized that not everyone is going to like me – and that is ok!
