I write on this subject often, here on my blog, and I talk to other people about it ….. a lot. I do not pick the subject, it picks me. The phrase “what other people think of you is none of your business” is one that I have been either saying or hearing a lot lately. If you read my blog, you probably have heard me say, I always told my kids to “read their own mail”!! In other words, whatever is going on in some other persons life has nothing to do with you, and that includes what they think of you. It has nothing to do with you! Can you grasp that? I hope so. I hope you can wrap your head around that because it is a fact! There are some things in this life we can control, precious few things, but controlling other people’s thoughts are not one of them!
It’s not just a saying or a cliché, it is truth. You have no control over what another person thinks, let alone what they think about you. They will think what they want and there is nothing you can do about it, so why not, not worry about it? OR even better; don’t ask, don’t listen, don’t want to know!
You will live a more satisfied life if you just take some time to think about this. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
