How much should we care regarding what other people think about us? I’d really appreciate your opinions please, because it’s something I still struggle with.
This, That or The Other?
On one hand, I always taught my girl not to care about what anyone had to say to her, called her, or thought of her, etc. especially if they didn’t believe in her.
Yet, on the other hand, what if you’re in the public eye and have a reputation to protect? Can you really not care about the opinions of others while still embracing who you are as a unique individual?
It’s also very important that we understand the difference between constructive criticism and the nay-sayers (be it out of jealousy, their own lack of self-esteem, anger, etc.)
But, we also want to have a positive self-image, self-assurance, and a healthy self-esteem.
So, my friends… How much are we to care and
how do we find a healthy balance between humility and self-confidence?
