Most people out there fight the same battle, which is why I compiled a few things to help you hustle.
Discover the best way how to not care about what others think.
Why do I care what others think about me?
The term “others” doesn’t qualify for the recognition we offer.
Unfortunately, everyone, including you and me, are considerate about what others feel.
Even though I have overcome the phrase where I worry about others, I have been there.
I know how you feel, and you don’t have to stress a lot about it! 🙂
You are already ready to question the mindset that makes you worry about others opinions, and there you have won!
Hence, it is not going to be hard to get out of the phrase where you are right now.
Not being in your own skin is stressful, this is why you need to think about why you care too much about others’ opinion.
Let me give you two minutes, ask yourself: ‘Why do I care too much about what others think about me?’
I know, you are worried that you will be cornered.
You are afraid that you will not be able to fit into the group.
But trust me, there have been many people, including myself who had the same thought.
Honestly, now, I’m happy for who I am just because I liked my skin and respected myself.
You need to understand that nothing matters if you are not satisfied with what you do and how you live.
This is why you need to stop worrying about others opinions.
Soon, you will not care what others think!
6 essential tips that will stop your concern towards others opinions
1. Negative comments are not for you, but for them!
There is something vital that you should understand.
People who offer hateful comments are either jealous or jobless.
If they have a job or a good life, they wouldn’t be spending time to criticize or comment on your life.
They wouldn’t be bothered about the job you have selected because it is not their concern.
But, as a human, you are likely to get hurt when such rude comments come your way.
Let me make it clear for you.
If you think about these comments, none of these comments will have a significant impact on you.
All those comments can never describe your life or job. It says who the commenters are.
When someone comments something negative about your job or life, ignore it.
Yes, at first, it will be hard, but when you practice, you will be able to do it.
Try to pity the commenter because he or she is jobless to comment on your life.
This will help you recollect the peace of mind that you lost and you’ll know how to stop caring what others think.
2. Be honest to yourself, not for others!
Being true to others is easier than being true to yourself.
Even though everyone tries to deny this fact, it is the truth.
Once you are honest with yourself, everything will fall into place.
For example, if you feel like going out with friends on a Friday night, do it.
You don’t have to worry about what the neighbors would say because you are doing it for yourself.
Like I already said, you are IMPORTANT, and your mental health is MORE THAN IMPORTANT!
As a personal example, one of my friends started full-time freelancing, and people frowned at her decisions.
They cited their own experience to change her decision.
Trust me, if you love what you are doing, you will definitely, succeed in it even if the whole world is against you.
She succeeded, so why not you?
If you want to achieve your goals and lead a peaceful life, you must be honest with yourself!

3. One life and that’s yours, don’t let others design it for you!
“I wish I lived my life rather than existing.”
Do you want to say this when you reach the 60s or 70s?
I don’t think you’d like to regret wasting years by thinking what others think about you.
Thus, it is not too late to stop worrying about others’ opinions.
Honestly, you only get one life, and that shouldn’t live it the way others want.
You shouldn’t forget that death is promised, thus don’t spend your time on unnecessary things.
Liberating your mind to lead a peaceful life should be your number priority!
4. Find the worst thing that might happen if you go against society!
Seriously, why are you holding back from doing the things you love?
For example, going on vacation is a stress-buster, and people love to do it more often.
I know, you like to do it too, but you are worried that people might comment on something negative.
Of course, they will, and they wouldn’t comment positively if you rather stay home.
Somehow, they will find their way to comment.
Besides, think about the worst that might happen if you go on a vacation.
They might pass hints or comment negatively on your social media posts, right?
If you aren’t mentally prepared, this might be unhealthy for your mental health.
But if you are prepared, you wouldn’t even care to read to the comments.
I urge you to print this quote from Richard Branson and paste it on your fridge or somewhere you would say often:
“I’d rather look back on life and say ‘I can’t believe I did that’ than ‘I wish I did that.'” -Richard Branson
5. Get rid of negativity, NOW!
It is you who choose to get hurt, not the other way around.
If you remove toxic people and situations from your life, you can lead a stress-free life.
Your time is precious.
Thus you should decide what to do with it.
Are you going to spend time on unnecessary hateful comments?
Or are you going to ignore offensive comments and be happy?
It is challenging when you are doing it for the first time, but with time you will master it.
6. You’re not for everyone, let people be wrong about you!
You can’t make everyone to accept or like you, because it is not possible.
If people don’t like you, it is their bad.
Forget about the ones who don’t like you and focus on the ones who like you.
Try to spend your valuable time and thoughts on the ones who accept you.
Listen to the ones who love you because they care for you.
It is better to be hated for being yourself, rather than changing yourself for them.
Why learning about social anxiety?

So, what is social anxiety?

Social anxiety disorder is one of the most significant mental health problems. Millions of people face this problem and suffer every day because of it.
Social anxiety leads to traumatic conditions. Thus, you need to stop worrying about what others think.
Let me help here, check out the ways to stop worrying about what others think of you!
3 great tips to stop worrying about what other people think of you
1. Focus on what you need!
In this day and age, not everyone is ready to act and dress like the way we have been told.
Unfortunately, a higher percentage of the population is suffering from social anxiety because they are trying to act as for the social norms. But why?
What are you going to get from living the way others want?
If you start worrying about others, you are likely to increase social anxiety.
Instead of fulfilling and worrying about other’s needs, you can focus on what you need.
If you spend more time on what others need, you will not have time for yourself.
The fear of rejection also will increase over time. Once you understand this, you can overcome social anxiety.
2. Enjoy the moment!
If you want to avoid your constant worry about others, you need to stop spoiling the moment.
If you seize the present moment, you will not have time to focus on the things that might happen in the future.
For example, if you like a particular outfit, go ahead and wear it.
You shouldn’t worry about how people will judge you once you wear it.
The people who judge you will not purchase a new dress for you.
Also, it is not their money. Instead, it is yours.
Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the judgments. Don’t think about ‘ifs and buts’ instead enjoy the moment.
3. People don’t care!
If you analyze how people behave and live, you will realize that they don’t care what you do and how you act.
This includes the ones who judge, and even they don’t care because they have their own lives to worry about.
Of course, they do pass hints and judge you, but it will not be in their minds after some time because they have their own life to sort out.
The simple fact is everyone has their insecurities.
Therefore, nobody wants to pull others down. If you understand this, you can lead a peaceful life! 🙂
