Do we always have to consider what other people will say?

There are times that we want to decide on something which we are uncertain, simply like in choosing someone we want to spend our life with. But sometimes because of the influence of our culture,our family, our society, or whatsoever, we are hampered to do so. Sometimes, considering how we raised by our family, let say we've been from a very concervative descendants, even a very simple thing you've done which are not unlawful nor even that forbidden, but just out of their belief would turn out to be a big deal and unethical. And that usually hinders and limit us in doing what we want. Do we always have to consider what other people will say in what we have done even we know it will suppressed our happiness?

Other people opinion is not really a big deal if you just won't mind what will they say. If doing a thing won't hurt you or your love ones, then go on just do what you want to do and don't mind them. But you must consider too, f doing those things would hurt you or your love ones, then think twice.

i say NO.it is your life not theirs. should you suffer with the decision you make, show them you can handle it and that you are responsible enough to stand in your own feet. Should you fail because you made the wrong decision, show that that you can stand again and start your life all over. For as long as you know what to do in order to survive, there is no need to always consider what others will say. What they will SAY won't hurt you nor help you. Just be firm with your decisions and be strong to face the consequences. And besides, even if you allow them, whoever they are, to influence your decisions,they won't be always there to help you in solving your personal problems.

I think as long as you are not hurting anyone then it's ok to do what you like even if other people don't agree with it.
