What Other People Think About You…

2018-05-09_09-40-05.pngAre you a worrier? Do you worry about what other people think about you? If so, it just might be preventing you from being who you were meant to be. According to many studies, people driven by worry are some of the least happy people in the world. About the only thing that does more damage to your personal life than worry is an irrational fear.

Worrying about what others think of you will prevent you from being real. It will prevent you from taking risks that will make you a better person. It will prevent you from being what others need you to be (which isn’t always the same as what they want you to be).

At the root of it, worrying will prevent you from being at peace and that is what most of us seek in our lives. Let’s all be like Alfred E. Neuman and not worry about so much. 🙂

  • I looked a little further into this Alfred E. Neuman character. He’s actually the mascot for MAD magazine. I didn’t know this. I got a chuckle over a number of his pithy quotes. By the way, no worries about what other people think here. I’d rather wile away my hours thinking about things that matter.

    • Hi Sparkyjen, I’m glad you looked into Alfred E. Neuman. I started reading Mad magazine at a pretty early age in the late 1950s. It was and still is quite “off the wall”. HIs motto was “What, Me worry??” He never worried about anything, especially what people thought of him. 🙂 Yeah, worrying and fear are two things that don’t have a productive side to them.

  • I thought that helps me not to worry about what others might think of me is to realize that most people really aren’t thinking that much about others—because are too wrapped up in worrying about themselves and what others are thinking of them!
