As functioning members of the society, we are culturally conditioned to pay attention to others’ judgment of us.
Sometimes this grows into a crippling fear, an anxiety, of how others think of us.
As I grow older, I am starting to realise: most people are busy dealing with their own shits, and they really don’t think much about you, if at all.
"Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind”
For the handful of people – your parents, your best friends – whose judgments matter to you, they will always be your cheerleader and wish the best for you, no matter how you are doing.
If you are my reader, know this - I probably don't think about you at all. If I care enough to think about you, I am likely your cheerleader and want the best for you.
You are by far the harshest judgment of your own self.
No one gives a fuck about you.
Start freeing yourself from your fear and anxiety.
