Does it really even matter?

What did she say about me? Is he looking at me? Why don't they like me? Do I look fat in this? Do you ever ask why it even matters? Why do we care so much about what other people think?

Well, it's the human condition to care, although some people do not. We don't want people looking at us and thinking there is something wrong with us or somehow we don't look right. In my personal experience though, the people who pick us apart are the ones who have the most to hide. They are generally trying to deflect attention from themselves by making you the topic of conversation. You forgot one - "Does this body make me look fat?"

I used to be so shy asn I just realized now that that shyness was because I was too concerned about what other people will think of me, or my actions. But I have now shed most of this shyness off, and realized that most poeple don't really notice the things that I used to worry too much about.

well without trying to sound harsh, I don't really give a rats butt what people think or say about me. As far as I'm concerned, they can either follow me or get out of my way cause they sure as hell are not going to lead me. I do my own thing and I say what I think. I don't worry about things that don't really matter like what others say or think about me. I've got better things to do with my brain power.

Good question. Every time I think I don't do it anymore, I find I have gotten worse. I wish I did not care so much about what other people think. Why? I don't know. Just somehow I do care. Low self esteem I suspect? Take care, have a nice evening.
