The Gift of Not Caring What Others Think

The Best Gift You Can Give Yourself

The motto of the holiday season seems to be, “It’s better to give than receive.” But is there really anything wrong with giving yourself a gift, too? Here’s a gift that’s totally free, will make you happy, and may even save you money in the long run: It’s the gift of letting go of other people’s opinions.

Do You Care How They Feel?

One of the most popular questions I get on the line is, “What does so-and-so think of me?” Sometimes they want to know for romantic reasons. They want to know if someone they have feelings for has feelings for them in return. Sometimes it’s for professional reasons. They want to know what their boss or coworkers think about them. They want to know if someone is talking about them behind their back. No matter the reason, my answer is the same: It doesn’t matter what that person thinks of you!

When You Should Care

Let me clarify. There are some instances where knowing what someone thinks of you is helpful. For example, if you have a boss who doesn’t give feedback, it would be helpful to know how they really feel about your job performance. Or, if you had a communication breakdown with your significant other, it would be great to know what they think so you know where your relationship stands. Other than these types of situations, someone’s opinion of you doesn’t matter.

Investing Time and Energy

We invest way too much time and energy worrying about what other people may or may not think about us. If this person is not your superior at work or a person you’re romantically involved with, why do you care?

Mom’s Great Insight

When I was a little girl, my mother told me “Not everyone is going to like you and that’s okay.” It’s just a fact of life that you won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, so why stress over it? There could be any number of reasons why someone doesn’t like you. Maybe they are envious of your real or imagined privileges or talents. Maybe they are insecure and have low self-esteem. My mother also said, “Some people need to put others down to make themselves feel bigger.”

Your Self-Worth and Happiness

But, back to you. Why do you care? Ask yourself. Your self-worth and happiness shouldn’t depend on what other people think. Once you realize this, it will be a huge relief. Suddenly all the energy you’ve invested in worrying about another’s opinion of you is freed up.

Reclaim Your Personal Power

You know you are a person of integrity, so who cares if someone else says different? You work hard and do your best to be honest, kind, generous and fair. When you stop caring about other people’s opinions of you, you reclaim your personal power. Take that power and use it constructively towards your goals. This holiday season, get your priorities straight and focus your energy on you—where it belongs.

    Excellent article, right on the money. People spend a lot of energy trying to figure out what people think of them. Arwen is right, it only matters in certain circumstances. One of my favorite books is called “What you think of me is none of my Business.” If you live your life well, treat people with dignity and kindness, that’s really all you need. It’s what YOU think of you at the end of the days that matters.
