I care a lot about what others think about me but tbh it causes major problems because I think things like I’m really ugly so why bother wearing make-up, people will only think “who is she trying to kid”. Most of it is more negative thoughts in my own head than people’s actual reactions

I have to admit…I worry waaaay too much about what others might think.

All the time…

I probably care too much.  I used to have a very laid-back, “who cares” attitude, but as I’ve gotten older I feel like I’m more uptight.  I guess it has to do with pressures from society or whatever, but sometimes I do wish I cared less.

I really don’t care that much. I know that some people don’t like me because I voice my opinion and won’t back down, I swear like a sailor, and I can’t hide my feelings easily (so if I’m annoyed/pissed off/sad, you will know it!), but it honestly doesn’t really bother me. 

I stopped caring what other people think about me in high school, when I was judged solely on my outward appearance. Once I realized that people will judge you no matter what, i quit caring. Its pretty freeing, actually

As I get older I care less what people think.

I care about people and take the feelings of those I love into consideration when making decisions.  However, for the most part, Nope.  I care more about what I think than what anyone else thinks.  I agree with your DH on that one.

I don’t care at all what people think of me and my SO and mom think that’s a horrible attitude.  Really? Sorry I live my life for myself and to make me happy! My mom told me I should’t live my life that way. Huh? Who wants to live their life worried about what other people will think? Surely not me!

@SpartyGirl:  I feel the same way!! I imagine it must be tiring wondering what others are thinking. As long as me and my hubs are happy, I’m good!

@imalittlebirdie:  I’m the same.  I won’t purposefully make an ass of myself but in general, I really don’t care what people think because I’m happy.  Their opinions don’t change that.

I don’t really care. I want people to think that I have good manners and I want people to see me as a good person, but I’m not constantly thinking about what other people will think about what I’m doing or wearing.

@MM423:  I’ve narrowed it down to caring what about 4-5 people think. That’s it, I don’t worry about the others. Let them worry about what i think about them if they want to spend time thinking about me.
