Any Whooo, here is a question for ya.  What is more important? What you think of yourself or what other people think of you?   Give me your answers and tell me why.

What I think of me is much more important that what other people think of me - I have to live with me, not with them!!!!

What I think of myself is more important. No one else knows every thing I have gone through. And without that knowledge you can't form a complete and informed opinion.

What I think of myself is more important, as I have had many people judge me because I am different than they are in certain ways.  I am proud of myself, and it really should not matter what others think of me.

You know, I want to say "what I think of myself" but honestly, I do think it is important what others think of me!

And I think that's why some people go to great lengths to spend money for stuff they really can't afford, don't need, "keeping up with the Joneses"   I would like to honestly say "I don't care" what others think of me but that's not true 100% of the time.

I try to be friendly as often as I can.  I try to stay positive. that's just me, who I am. 

So, in all fairness to your question, I will say it is important to me what others think of me, but I am also true to myself as well.

I also think it is a combination of both.  No man is an island and we all have to live with other people so it is important that they think well of us.  If you don't think well of yourself no one else will either so thinking well of yourself is also very important.

What I think of nyself is most important because if I don't think well of myself no one else will think well of me either,

Well, it's very important to me that I'm able to look at myself in the mirror so to speak etc...I try to live my life like that.  Doing what's right etc....Sometimes I say I dont give a crap what other people think and in some instances I don't but in some I do.  Does that make sense???   LOL  What I mean is this I guess....I have to be able to live with the decisions I make and while I may care what others think to a point the ultimate thing is whether I can live with it and be ok with it.

 To be honest, my first thought was I care what God thinks of me.
