Stop Caring What Others Think About You.

 "What other people think of you is not your business. If you start to make that business your business, you will be offended for the rest of your life."

-Deepak Chopra

We are human beings; naturally, we need to be liked by others. Often we care so much about what other people think about us. Growing up, we have learned to follow the standard or the norm that our society has created.

We always do the things we are supposed to do, which makes us forget to follow our hearts. We have a dream, but we don't dare to chase it because we fear failure. We fear how other people will judge or think about us.

And we even try to please others to make them approve or like us. We act like these because we have learned that we have to get approval from others, making us feel we fit in. We live up to other's expectations. 

I was the one who tried to be a people pleaser because I wanted approval and like. I used to live up to other's expectations that included my family's. Until one day, I have realized that living that way will not make me happy.

I don't have to worry about what others will think about me because it isn't my business, but it is their business. And I have only one life, why don't I live and spend it the way I want? And what others think of me does not matter, but what I think about myself does matter!
