Hi Shake Shah nice question you ask. Personally, I suppose we all like to think others think of us highly, (& hope they even like us) but, this all comes from how we think, & of how we 'like' ourselves, in the first place.
I suppose we should not be too concerned on how another should like, or even hate us, or not, but we should pay special regard to how we look at ourself & be the best we can be, to us, to except yourself, repair what you think you are doing wrong, & try to be happy, "don't do unto others as you would not like done to yourself"
Thank you for a great question that I loved to answer.
I definitely cosign with 90% of what inspired has said. I can relate to anyone who doesn't waste their time focusing or depending on what others think. just imagine that you do, most of the time people are pretending and acting, and I don't think anyone wants to entertain or engadge phony folk! Too much energy is wasted and before you know it your day was wasted and filled with you
being concerned about what wasn't your concern. If someone just happens to like you, so be it, if they don'...... so be it as well. It is only the IMPORTANT things in life that will always be an asset so why waste time on anything or one that isn't. It's really plain and simple no black and white here!
p.s. if you feel like you need to run after, appease and stroke someone just so they can think about you, I see ALOT of stroking taking place in your life time! and it wont be pretty.
It used to be that I was so concerned with what my co-workers and boss think about me. Now, I don't even bother thinking about their perception of me. What's important is that I do my job well and I have other things that keep me busy and productive..
I am more concerned about how my husband, son and family think of me. I know how important I am to them that is why I try my best to meet their expectations.
Each person think differently about the same person. This is common in the world. What we are supposed to do is that we should conduct ourselves according to the principles and morals taught by our parents or family; do our duties such as career, social endeavours, etc honestly and responsibly on our own; take care of our loved ones well and if others compliment or praise you, thankfully respond to them and if they criticize or think wrongly about you, quietly ignore them and carry on your duties-both job and family. We should be not too conscious about what others think about us all the time. Also we should learn to handle both praises and criticisms as both enable us to know what is required for our accomplishments and failures and learn from our mistakes and use mistakes/failures as stepping stones to success. Last but not the least, always be positive and happy and automatically positive and peaceful mind helps in doing your desired choices in life successfully!

The opinions of others on ourselves - why do we care?Whilst we can all try to say "I don't care what anyone thinks of me" it's likely to be a lie - we do so! But why? Any answers?

Why do we care so much about what others think of us?What we say, what is said about us, what we wear, what we eat... There are so many campaigns with the slogan to just "be yourself", and yet, we still seem...
