Most people agree that it doesn’t matter what other people think of them. That’s in theory.
In reality, without realizing it, we attach importance to the opinion others have about us. Yes, you do it too… and that’s okay. For now.
What they think of us matters, but we would like the tranquility that comes from not giving them any power over us through their opinions.
Start by being conscious that what they do, how they feel, and what they think isn’t in your control. Their actions, their feelings, and their thoughts belong to them.
And then do the exercise of not taking what they do, feel, or think personally.
You’re wrong 99% of the time when you give meaning to someone’s action, or you try to guess what they’re thinking of feeling. You don’t have telepathic powers. So stop acting and talking as if you had 😉
