As you have gotten older do you feel like...??

you don't care about opinions about your decisions ? I can make my own decisions now. I don't need input. I am just wondering if others feel this way? I think when I was younger I really needed more input. Now I just really couldn't care less what people think about the things I decide. Anon because I know this is pretty obnoxious.

  • Depends. I'll consider other's opinions on my own if they are older or if they have "been there, done that". I think it wise to listen to our experienced elders.

    If it comes unwanted from someone my own age or younger, I've learned to hear but not listen.

  • yes, for the most part I agree with you. I take my husband into consideration, but i used to really hold my aunts and moms opinion of my actions very highly and now not so much. i do what is right for my family, and hopefully everyone will accept it, if not, too bad!

  • OP: I agree with this: "I think it wise to listen to our experienced elders." I just mean I don't need help from others to make decisions. Nor actually do I want help. I think I feel more capable.

  • I'll care if its an opinion from an older friend. As the old cliche goes, older and wiser.
