What Other People Think

April 26, 2007

What other people think is only what other people think.

Other people are just as confused as you are, just as insecure, just as frightened, just as likely to make mistakes, to be envious, jealous, or self-deceiving, and, therefore, just as likely to distort what they hear and see.


First of all, what other people think about you is none of your business.

Remember that.

But if you must know what other people think, it has more to do about how they feel about themselves than how they feel about you.

Other people are probably wondering what you think of them.

Think about that.

What I think of myself is all that matters.

I value myself. I remember my goodness.

    Yeah well said. Can you imagine how stressful it would be if we keep wondering and worrying about what people think of us? I definitely don’t need the added stress 🙂

    Thanks for sharing my sentiments, Tine. 🙂

    You know … half the time when we worry about what people think of us, it turns out that the ‘people’ are actually thinking something else and we’re just worrying about it ourselves.

    Just be what is right. You’ll be fine. =)

    I know, Moz. 😉
    And I also know that I’ll be fine. 😀

    I’ve never really cared abt what others thought. Because they don’t know better anyway.

    That’s a great attitude, Sha. 🙂

    Everything will fall when you think ill of yourself
    Think otherwise and none from other will affect you

    Wise advice, Mattz.
    Thanks. 🙂

    you got me thinking about what you were thinking when you wrote about this think entry.

    You won’t want to know, Zewt. 😛

  9. Weird! I have to give a small speach on Monday night in front of the Police Commissioner, the Mayor and numerous other BIG WIGS. My boss told me to imagine them in their underwear … and somehow It’s started to happen. I really am seeing people walking around in their underwear … if not I’ve developed X-Ray vision! 🙂

    LOL 😆
    Thanks, Dabs.

    Hi Jemima! It’s been a while since I left a comment on your blog.

    I’ve been silently reading though 😉 You’re still a fave of mine.

    This is post is related to a post I wrote a few days ago when someone left a mocking comment on my blog. I got angry and I retaliated. Later I questioned myself, why should I even bother? If she doesn’t like me and how I practise my faith, skruit. I’m happy the way I am and that’s how it matters, like you said.

    This post knocked some sense 🙂 Thanks Jemima!


    Dear Anneesa,
    Yes, I know that you have become a silent reader & I have missed your comments.
    Thanks for sharing your own experience here with me & others. 🙂
    I’m glad you like this post, too. 😉
