 I wish I could be more like my husband...he doesn't care all that much one way or other and wonders why I think so much about a subject...lol

Definitely not. I do what I do. People either like it or they don't. I stopped worrying and trying to please everyone decades ago.

Lol,no I'm not a people pleaser.But I am conscience of other people's feeling,and try to respect their opinion.I think the best way to over come it is to just stop,cold turkey.Its too emotionally draining to try to please everyone all the time,plus,everyone isn't gonna be pleased all the time anyway.Kwim.

 Thanks...great advice!  The truth is I don't know what people are thinking all the time either...so why should I care, right?

I could give a f**K what other's think of me.  I say what is on my mind but I try not to be rude about it all the time.  I do respect other people's feelings.
