I’m sure you’ve heard that what other people think of you doesn’t matter. Well, it does—just not for the reasons we believe it does. No one can make you feel bad about yourself, but they can make you feel good or bad about yourself based on how they perceive your actions and words. So if someone thinks something negative about me (e.g., “You’re lazy”), then the only thing they accomplish is making themselves feel better by saying those things out loud (and maybe even taking a few shots at my character). But here’s the thing: If someone says something positive about me (e.g., “I like how hard-working and dedicated you are”), then even though their opinion may differ from mine because they weren’t there while these things happened—or maybe even had anything directly to do with them happening—they’ll still be happy knowing that someone else who knows me well thinks highly of who I am as an individual human being based solely on what they know about me as opposed to who I am based solely on what I’ve done so far in life.
I don’t have time to think about what other people think of me.
One of the most common reasons people gives for not liking someone is because they think their opinion of them is wrong.
But what if you don’t care what other people think? What if they’re wrong, and it doesn’t matter?
That’s exactly how I feel about myself. If you don’t like me, that’s your problem—not mine! It doesn’t affect who I am or how well we get along in life (or not).
If you don’t like me, that’s your issue, not mine.
If you don’t like me, that’s your issue, not mine.
I know this can be hard to accept. We all want to be liked and loved by our friends and family. But if someone doesn’t like you for whatever reason (whether it’s because of your personality or because they just don’t get along with you), it is not their problem or concern; it’s not their fault, and they don’t have to fix anything about how they feel about themselves because of what happened between us in the first place!
It’s okay if your friend can’t make herself like me now—but once she does, then I promise we’ll talk about why she was so mean before!
It doesn’t matter what you think of me because your opinion doesn’t change who I am.
You are the only one who can define who you are. Your opinion of yourself is the only one that matters. Your self-esteem is essential; it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about your body, personality, or goals. You are the only one who can choose to be happy with yourself, and no one but you has any say in how much time or energy they will put into doing that!
You don’t need others’ approval to feel good about yourself—you just need theirs not affecting your ability to do so. If someone judges something about themselves negatively (e.g., their appearance), then there’s nothing wrong with changing it! There’s also nothing wrong with being self-conscious about something (e;g., weight). It’s okay if someone thinks differently from how we feel; this doesn’t mean anything negative about either party involved.
I like myself, so even if one person thinks I’m bad at my job or a bad friend, it doesn’t matter to me since I’m doing my best and trying to be a good person.

You must realize that your opinion of yourself is the only one that matters because no matter what anyone else says about how they feel about you, the only person who can make those judgments is YOU! So if someone thinks your work performance isn’t up to par with their expectations, they’re wrong! You’re doing your best and trying as hard as possible, so don’t let anyone else’s opinions get in the way of making sure things go smoothly every day at work – especially when deadlines are looming overhead!
Someone else’s opinion of me does not affect my life unless I allow it to.
You may have heard the saying, “Don’t worry about what other people think of you.” Well, that’s not true. What others think of your character and personality does matter to you. It’s not just a random thought or fleeting emotion; it can become a part of who and how someone perceives themselves in the world—and this affects their daily decisions on how they act towards others (and vice versa).
So why should we care? Because if someone’s opinion of us is negative, it can affect our lives in ways that aren’t always obvious at first glance:
We might start feeling insecure about ourselves when we realize that others don’t see us as valuable members of society.
We might begin wondering if our friends are secretly judging us behind our backs because they know how much work goes into being good at something like cooking or dancing (or whatever skill-set makes up who we are).
What other people think does not affect reality.
You may think what other people think of you is essential, but it isn’t.
You can be the most fantastic person in the world and still not be liked by everyone. It’s not about you—it’s about them.
It’s also not your job to make others happy or feel good about themselves; that’s their job! If someone dislikes your personality or actions, it doesn’t mean they’re suitable for you (or vice versa). Your job is to focus on yourself and do what makes YOU happy instead of worrying about how others think of YOU.
We all have our thoughts about ourselves, but I hope you’re able to realize that there is nothing to be concerned about when it comes to what other people think. We all have different lives and experiences, so we can’t possibly know what another person feels about us. Positive or negative, the only thing that matters is how well we do in life.
