Not caring what people think of you - how to make that change

 Well hello to you my reader chums! Caring about what people think is part of being human. We're constantly comparing ourselves to everyone around us, thinking we could do better or be better. Honestly, it's a waste of our time, especially when it comes to caring what other people think of you. I can assure you, that nobody cares or thinks as much about your life as you do.

Not caring what people think of you - how to make that change

That may sound harsh, but it's reality. We constantly think everyone is watching our every move and they're judging us, but in reality, it's not the case. If you're worried about what people think of you, here's my advice on how to make the change and stop caring about what people think of you.

Focus on your goals and passions

You can't worry about what others are thinking if you're too focused on your own goals and passions. We all have dreams and aspirations and to make waves in life, focusing on them is key. Whether you want to start a business, save a certain amount of money, travel to a certain destination or have a family, everyone has a different dream. We all deserve to live them and starting to list what they are can give you more of a direction in your life. You need to switch your mindset from 'what people want me to achieve' to 'what do I want to achieve' and focus on that.

Practice regular affirmations

Affirmations are key to creating a positive mindset and learning to love yourself. It's easy for us to think the worst about ourselves and call ourselves names, however, affirmations can diminish these thoughts, and also prevent you from caring about other's options. Affirmations are different for everyone and can be repeated in ways that suit you. From reading them first thing in the morning, every morning to having a list prepped when you're beginning to doubt yourself.

Take back control of your emotions

Emotions are a wonderful thing, yet when you're feeling down, they can almost feel out of control. Learning how to control your emotions is a challenging yet brilliant step in improving your emotional intelligence, dealing with situation out of your controls and helping you deal with not caring what people think. You will notice that you're caring less and less the more you're aware of your emotions, seeing what your triggers are, what causes you to feel down and what cheers you up. It all goes hand in hand with self-awareness, self-love, self-care and gaining perspective on your life.

Consider how you feel about your choices, rather than letting others dictate

Sometimes, especially when we're younger, it can be easier to follow the paths others dictate for us than do what we'd like. This could be because you're worried about what others think if you follow another path or you're concerned about how they'd react if you fail. However, I can assure you, that living a life that is authentic to you is the most powerful thing you can ever do. When we live authentically, life can seem more peaceful and feel right in ourselves. We won't feel as insecure or uncertain as we're connecting with our true selves, and no longer worry about other's opinions.

Remember, everyone is on a different chapter

You shouldn't compare your chapter one to somebody's chapter five. We're all on different paths, we all have different life experiences, different traumas, different financial situations and privileges. It's important to acknowledge all of these things when you're worried about caring what others think of you because, in all honesty, you will achieve what you want to achieve when it's right for you. It doesn't make you inferior to anyone else.
