“We aren’t responsible for what people think about us, but we’re responsible for what we give them to think about us.”
People tend to worry too much about what others may be thinking of them. The reality is that all human beings are focused primarily on themselves and really aren’t spending their time worrying about what you may or may not be doing. So relax. In the same way, knowing that everyone is in large part doing their best, don’t spend your own time looking for faults in others. Focus on the example you set for others so that when they do happen to be looking your way, you can be proud of the image you provide them.
You are an example to your family, your friends and your co-workers. Be conscious of showing a positive vs. a negative outlook. Be the kind of person you’d like to be around: optimistic, positive, and seeing the best in people and situations. You’ll soon find you are attracting those that do these things themselves. And as you do this more and more, you will be more confident about what others think of you, giving you more time to feel and be positive.
