Be Happy: 5 ways to stop caring what other people think of you

We all want to be accepted and be liked, that’s human nature. But in the race to please others, you might lose your identity. It’s so easy to get lost in the glitz of the world that you start doing things that are appealing to others or under peer pressure. It is time to break this cycle and stop caring what other people think of you.

It’s a conscious decision that you need to make for your mental wellbeing and overall happiness.

Follow these 5 ways and stop caring what other people think of you.

1.Be true to yourself

The only person you’re accountable to is ‘yourself’. If you’re true to yourself, then you don’t need to worry about what other people think of you. The aim is to be honest and transparent to yourself.

how not to care what others are doing
Do things that you believe in. People will keep on saying things.

For example, if you’re on a diet, then follow it strictly. Or if you have deadlines to follow, then all you need to do is work towards them and prove it to yourself that you’ll be a better version of yourself.

2. Get rid of negativity

There is so much negativity that surrounds us on a day to day basis. Be it at work or on social media, the negative vibes can have an adverse effect on you. Get rid of these negative factors and you can stop caring what other people think of you.

Let go of negativity and focus on good things!

We all like to put our best version on the internet. But you need to know that everyone has bad days, so don’t get carried away with what someone is showing on social media.

Support others. How? Read this: Don’t be a bitch. Be a wise cat that supports other women.

3. Find your tribe

We meet so many people, but there is just a handful that we consider our tribe. Match your vibe to your tribe and find that circle of happiness. The idea is to connect with people who inspire, encourage, and support you. Don’t waste your time with people who are pretentious. This will just add bitterness.

4. Don’t get bothered by opinions

Opinions are meant to change. Keeping perspective is a good thing, but being affected by opinions and over-thinking about it is certainly not a good thing. What’s good for you might be terrible for someone else. So why bother about what others think. If you like it do it, if your conscious allows it then do it and be happy and proud about it.

5. You cannot please everyone

You are not a jar of Nutella, so you cannot please everyone. There would be someone who would always criticize whatever you do. Wear red and they’ll say it’s too bright; wear pastels and they would complain it’s boring.

Please yourself, do more of what makes you happy and you’ll see how the world will seem to be a positive place.

Life would be much simpler if you stop caring what other people think. Implement these practical tips in your life and also share it with your friends and family.
