Do you really care what others think about you?

ME: Nope never have and never will. I am who I want to be and if they do not like it then move on.

  • I try not to because I know that in reality they have never walked a day in my shoes and they never will.

  • sure, to some extent. i'm a pleaser and controller; but i'm also apathetic and fine with being alone. in other words, i don't feel i have to have people like me to be happy. i am what i am, and they can take it or leave it. fortunately, my closest friends appreciate my candor and know that i don't pull punches. they don't have to guess.

  • Well for me to stay in business, I have to care what my clients think about me. If they think I am not good at my job or that I am unfriendly or that I don't listen to them, then they don't come to me and I don't make money. But to be liked socially, isn't that important to me. You either get me, or your don't. Fine either way.

  • For some things. I'd rather not have people think I'm a catty whiny b*tch, for instance. That kind of negativity would bother me, but more for my personal sake - if that's how I'm portraying myself in life, what's going on that's causing it? I don't think people who are that bad off are happy.

  • Not for a second. I used to get picked on and dealt with a lot of shit when I was in the navy. Now I don't care what people think of me. I'd prefer they tell me what's going on so I can find a way to fix the situation, but other than that, I don't give a damn if anybody likes me or questions my parenting skills, choice of husband, pets, etc.

  • I try not to, but I care more than I should. In some ways, ik really good about it, but with the people close to me, I care a lot. Strangers can think what they want.
