Weekend Wisdom: Other People’s Opinions

Share this post

There’s an old BS thought that comes up for me often.

“What will other people think of me?”

My answer is usually, “I’m not good enough.”

I think it goes back to being bullied about my weight all through school. I can remember being so sensitive about how I looked and never feeling as good as anyone else.

As an adult I can always tell when I’m out of my comfort zone. I can feel the shame of not being good enough wash over me when I start doing something hard.

The old thoughts pop up. Yep, they still do but what’s different now is that I take them as a sign to look inward. Not as a sign I have to be someone I’m not, cave to others thoughts, or give up on myself.

I’m not really afraid of what other people think. It’s a sign I need to work on liking myself and my decisions. The only reason I look outside myself to find fear and doubt is because I haven’t figured out how to be confident and assured on the inside.

It’s time for me to reassure myself of a couple of key things: whatever I’m doubting I CAN do it if just keep going, and I can’t expect others to approve of me if I don’t approve of me first.

When you start leveling up your opinion of yourself you’ll notice you just don’t stew in the thoughts of others.
