i used to. However, when i hit 40 i had a revalation. It dawned on me, I am a legitimate person in my own right, here i am fully formed. Love me as i am or take a walk. This recognition lifted so much pressure from me that i will never again feel like this again I am happy, blessed be

Not usually although when my children where little it annoyed me if anyone said anything bad about them. That would really make me mad.

if the perople..is talking bout the things that i did wrong..or the bad things bout me then i would just probably try to not to do that thing again but if the...people is talking about what i haven't done...then it would probably the time to slap someone real hard.. i just find out the person who talked bout me in that wa..y..nonsense talk. i would go and slap them so bad that they wouldn't do that thing again in future.

to tell the truth,i don't care what people say about me.whatever.whenever.no matter good or bad.either face to face or back.i can receive it,"receive",not accept.that's my point.i mean,everyone has the right to make comments.it's his mouth and tongue controlling by himself only.further more,who knows me the most? it's me.in the real world,i find people are getting falser and falser.they tend to magnify your drawbacks or be jealous of your advantages--just in my view.but as a gentleman,i can listen to their comments on me,if they say something bad about me i wouldn't be angry.if they praise me,i pay them back with a smile.but i am not that kind of hubris.i will think about their comments. if many people have pointed out one of my weakness unanimously,then i would take care of that,maybe it's true.and in the following days,i would trust these people,and regard what they say about me.

Of course! Because other people's words can reflect who I am. Unless they have said the wrong term for me, then that's the time I will react.

Yes.. I do care what other people say about me.. but not all people in general though. I only care about the the things important people in my life say. But for people who has no significance in my life. i don't bother.

I do, if criticism is a little negative, it will help me adjust further because we cannot see our own mistakes. But if it's hitting below the belt, we should find ways to correct the impression. The more we ignore negative criticism, the more they believe its true. When it's a positive one, we should be thankful that at least somebody noticed.

I'ts also worth caring for if it's from the people who loves and carers for us so much dearly that they do'nt want us to be put in vain. What I hate is if they tell me nonsense things in order to put me down.

yes of course, we are living in a world called society and we are accountable to all our actions and so with other people. Wether we like it or not we are always connected with each and everyone.

No I don't. If they are saying about me they are letting someone else to rest. I don't think much of a person who can't come to my face and tell me what they think about me.
