How many times have you heard people saying don’t care what people say about you. My question here is isn’t that what we ultimately want? To be better than them, to make people think highly of us and in a way that’s caring what people think.
I have seen people show off or lie or doing just about anything to impress other people, and the times when you want that guy in your class to look at you, to think about you, and the times when you receive a heartfelt compliment from someone, feels good doesn’t it?
So don’t we care what people think?
My answer would be yes. We do care what they think and the real answer diverges into two ways (at least that’s what I think)
Sure we get complimented and sometimes our mistakes are pointed out to us. What’s important here is what we need to remember and that’s what matters.
So what is it that matters out of all the truly amazing and sometimes heartbreaking things people say?
I would say what matters is what we need to remember, the lovely compliments, the life long advice, the times they tell you they have faith in you and believe in you, all the tines they tell you they love you and all the times you don’t wanna forget.
What not to care about what people think?
I leave the answer up to you. You have to decide what you should remember, what not, what matters and what not, what’s good for you and what’s not.
