How to stop caring about what people think?
Confident people don't care about what other people think especially if their words didn't match their core beliefs about themselves. Its not uncommon for a person who has a low self esteem to keep thinking of a word that was said to him over and over just because of the bad effect it had on him.
Certainly caring about what people think will make your life unhappy and will affect your self confidence in a bad way. That's why i wrote this article to tell you how to stop caring about what people think.
Stopping to care about what people think
People only care about what others think when they are unsure of themselves. Lets suppose that you knew that you were really attractive but had doubts about your intelligence.
If any person thought that you don't look good then most probably you wont care about his opinion but if anyone criticized you for not being intelligent you will certainly feel really bad. (see Why criticism hurts)
When i talked about Emotional woulds i explained how the more uncertain you are about a certain trait the more you will care about what other people think.
So the question now is, how to stop caring about what people think?
Self doubts and caring about what people think
If you were wearing a new shirt that you never tried before then you might care a lot about the opinion of other people because you are not sure yet whether it looks good on you or not. Now if you wore your best shirt then certainly you will be less vulnerable to the negative opinion of others.
The same exactly goes for your personality traits and everything that is related to you. Once you prove to your own self that you are good enough, that you are attractive and that your are an interesting person you will stop caring about the opinion of others.
Its impossible to prove to the whole world that you worthy but its extremely easy to prove it to yourself. Your mind was designed to prove whatever beliefs it has true. If you believed that you are not interesting then you will give events different meanings just to prove your beliefs true while if you believed that you are interesting you will never care about the opinion of others.
in order to stop caring about what people think you only need to convince one person that you are great. This person is you!!
