And I hope that’s helping you! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It is. LikeLike All day everyday. People aren’t happy with themselves, and need to talk about someone else to feel good about themselves, when it’s themselves they need to be talking about. That’s “Truth!” LikeLiked by 2 people Reply They do it so very much! And I think most of the time it has nothing to do with the person they’re talking about. It’s all about themselves… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Very often LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Have you ever tried limiting that? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, I’m working on that nowadays and i see some improvements 🙌🏼🙌🏼 LikeLike Waaaaaaay too often. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply And how is that affecting your behavior? LikeLike Reply Too much! In fact, it got to be so much so a few months ago that I had to take a step back and look more objectively at how people might be viewing me. If I could stop “mind-reading,” that would be awesome. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Have you ever tried to gather information about those assumptions? To test them? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply More often then I should. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What can you do about it? LikeLike Reply Lot’s of things, but at the end of the day, it’s about convincing my mind to stop overreacting. LikeLike Too much…even at my house with my family. Figure that out. I’m trying to ignore those voices in my head, but it’s incredibly hard. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It is… if you think about it, how did those voices developed in the first place?

We can do the best we can for others, but it’s their responsibility to take it. We cannot decide how they receive information… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Probably more than I should to the point of feeling like a narcissist. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply How is that influencing your life? LikeLike Reply What others think about me is none of my business! LikeLiked by 5 people Reply That’s right! Have you always thought this way? LikeLike Reply Soory for the late reply. No, I did not always think this way. I tended to try to please others by being non-confrontational, follow the rules etc., always worrying about what others thought of me. It was a stressful way to live so I gave it up. Now I don’t give too many thoughts about what people think of me. LikeLike Most often. But, I have realized that what I think about myself is more important that what others think about me. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Oh, this is a perspective I can get behind. Well said! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m glad you came to this conclusion. What helped you get here? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I am not able to put my finger on one thing Bogdan; but , I think it’s my experience and the advice I get from my family and friends. LikeLike Rarely anymore. Now I question what they might be thinking. But that took decades to get to. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wow! That’s awesome! How come you got here? LikeLike Reply it happens with age. You begin to not care what others think and start thinking of your own future without regards to theres than those close to you. its not rude. its time LikeLike Everyday LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How does it make you feel? LikeLike Reply Honestly? Drained..growing up I was only ever told bad things of what people thought of me so it’s a force of habit now LikeLike I used to do that a lot. I was very much concerned about how other people see me. But I am happy to say that I’m starting to change the way I think about this. It’s still hard, but I am trying my best not to think about what others think. I just focus on myself and my happiness. Others’s opinion of me is none of my business… 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply No, it’s not! You are your business 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Very less LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s awesome! Was it always like this? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yep always.. i just don’t bother lol LikeLike I used to, now not anymore. Even if I see someone whispering in front of me and most probably ABOUT me, I give them the space of a 5 minutes thought in my head, then I wipe them out. I don’t want to care at all. There’s already too much to be worried about. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yeah… we don’t need to be worried about other people’s thoughts… we have our own. LikeLike Reply A couple of times within a year, though it’s getting rarer and rarer. I may have this sudden nagging guilty feeling but I don’t know who I wronged, or what I did to them. When that happens, I usually reach some people I’m close to and apologize. And they would be confused and dumbfounded. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This is interesting! In your opinion, why they get confused and dumbfounded? LikeLike Reply I guess because they don’t expect that or simply because they don’t know what I mean or how should they react? LikeLike More than I should. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How is that affecting you? LikeLike Reply Not as much as I used to! I’ve learned assumptions are pointless!
