How to stop caring about what people think

Updated: Jan 17, 2023

We all like to be liked, but do you really care what other people think of you? If you do, it could be your biggest source of anxiety and stress.

We have put together tips on how to stop caring about what others think of you:

1. Define your own happiness - create a higher purpose or passion and figure out what works for you and what doesn’t

2. Realise that people don’t really care about you because they are wrapped up in their own thoughts - own who you are and your mistakes

3. Don’t compare yourself to others - this can lead to anxiety and depression through over admiration or even jealously

4. Therefore be grateful for what you have in the moment

5. Attack the thought patterns. Question the obstacles in front of you, then attack them with action to directly break that fear

6. Flip the situation - if you saw someone else in a predicament, what would you do or think? Most of the time you would help, support, think good of them or feel for them. That’s probably what they are thinking of you. So you shouldn’t be worried if it happens to you

7. Redirect insults - learn who to listen to and who to tune out from by deciphering the difference between positive criticism and negative comments

8. Don’t let praise or criticism affect you either way - don’t let it sway your moods whether it’s positive or negative energy

9. Understand yourself - define your own values, establish who you are as a person, what your values are, what you like and what you don’t like. Don’t be defined by the people around you and don’t seek social validation as your core happiness
