Today I’m going to rant about something that annoys me a lot.
I really dislike the concept of how people are always worrying about “what other people think”. Such as, what will people think if I wear this, or what if I do this, or what if I say this…I can practically list a million different scenarios where people are self conscience of what other people think about them. Everything they do is centered around that they are being judged by everything they do. It’s crazy.
And then there’s the people who claim that they don’t care what other people think. These are the people who constantly claim that they don’t care what other people think. I think that these people are the people who have graduated from the “what other people think” phase. Probably because they’re tired of always worrying about what other people think. Which makes a lot of sense, I guess. Good for them.
Then there’s people like me who share a common thought. These people are a step even higher. They’re on…lets call it…level 3.
The people who are on “level 3” understand and have come to realize that people don’t really care about what others think. These people are different than the people that who “don’t care what other people think” because they refuse to admit that they don’t care what other people think because they understand that people really aren’t thinking about the things that they do. People don’t think about them.
Take for example…Do you think about the last person who checked you out at the grocery store for any longer than a few seconds? Are you judging every stranger that you meet? Do you really care what your friend is wearing on a given day without forgetting about it the next day? If someone looks ugly, is it really going to bug you for very long? If you see someone with a zit, are you going to decide not to talk to them anymore?
Most people are more worried about themselves than anyone else. Their entire lifestyle is flooded with thoughts of thinking about what other people think instead of realizing that nobody is really thinking about them in the same way. Assuming that everyone is worrying about what other people will think of them, do you think everyone will have the time to be thinking about anyone else besides themselves?
This is in my mind an absolute fact. It’s reality. It’s how things really are. And the moment that you come to realize this, I think you will feel liberated.
