 Do you care about what others think of you?

Polltakers - if possible please leave a comment, even if anonymous. I am really interested in others thoughts and how they deal with sticky smelly situations.

I personally do not care unless the situation REALLY grants for it. I do not start conflict and keep to myself so usually people are just projecting on me something that has nothing to do with me at all, but this is my experience and how I feel about it. How about everyone else?

Someone posted this in another group but then deleted it. The conversation was really good though and sparked some interesting replies.

I think it's normal to care what people think of you but sometimes you have to just ignore other people. I care to a point. In my heart I know that I'm a good person so I try not to worry too much about what others think. I guess I care about the people closest to me & what they think of me.

I don't care what people think. I look at it you like me for me or you can fuck off.

My dh and dd loves me

It can bother me if it's someone I care about. Like if they said something rude or negative about me.but a total stranger being rude for no reason would just make me mad and lash out..lol I try not to care what people think or say about me but it is hard.im human and I have feelings.

 Yes. I have real issues besides the ones you made up in your head.

Quoting hollywood74:

 Most people are saying only professionally. That I can see. Still with me there are limits. People at my job will spread a rumor just as fast as a little girl in high school.

In the wise words of sweet brown... aint nobody got time for that!
