Nontra:  I have a lot of simular issues. I was abused as a child. My self esteem was very low. as an adult it took me until I had a child to see what really mattered. It’s not what ppl think of you. I could care less at this point in my life. My priorities have changed. The only people I care about what they think of me is my daughter and husband. Screw the rest!

The best piece of advice my grandmother ever gave me:

“What other people think of you is none of your business”. 

You can’t control what people think of you, and you certainly can’t make everyone like you. The best you can do is to be happy within yourself, and treat people as you would like to be treated. As long as you do this, it really doesn’t matter what people think of you because there’s not much else you can do. It takes a little practice to get into this mindset, but it really is freeing if you can.
