Why do we care so much what people think about us?
The main reason for this is down to the fear of rejection and we want to fit in.
We are afraid to be ourselves. As soon as someone says something that make us feel remotely uncomfortable we put ourselves into a box in a corner and do what they say to make other people feel comfortable.
When we try and make other people feel comfortable and act out of alignment with who we really are, we fall into the wrong crowd.
Before you do something, ask yourself is this who I am or am I doing this just to make someone else feel happy?
