How To Not Care What People Think

Hello everyone!

My name is Darrel Adams and I’m a young adult living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I thought I’d start a blog about interesting topics and my thoughts on business, news, and technology. But before I start to blog about the world around me, I’d thought I will share my thoughts on how to not care about what other people think of you.

  • People don’t care what you do as long it doesn’t effect them. 

One of greatest parts about being a young adult is that you get to experience life through a different role. You are not a child, so why should you be treated like one?! You basically have to do everything other adults do such as cooking, shopping for groceries, pay bills, get an education etc.

  • Learn to relax with not knowing what other people think of you

Why let others get in the way? It’s OKAY to be a little bit selfish and not care about others. Once you realize this powerful mindset, it will free your mind of worry, stress, and insecurities.

  • You won’t hurt that other person’s feelings if you say “No”. 

Life doesn’t have to be submissive to others. Stand up for yourself! Think before you agree to promises and stay focused on yourself because ultimately you are the only one who is looking out for you.

  • Lastly, STOP thinking so damn much. 

Does it matter if a girl thinks you that you’re “ugly”? Who Cares!

Do this self-hypnotic exercise:

  • Step 1: Think about times when you are tempted to worry what others think about you.
  • Step 2: Now think of times when you are totally focussed – maybe on a sports game or piece of music or reading a book, or talking with a friend when they’re telling you something amazing. Now notice that feeling of being totally focussed outside of yourself.
  • Step 3: Amplify that feeling.
  • Step 4: Take that feeling of outer focus into the imagined situation from Step 1 (where before you’d have been worrying about what others might be thinking).
  • Step 5: Experience being in the formally self-conscious situation and feeling relaxed and unconcerned about what others may or may not be thinking.
  • Step 6: Notice what it’s like to reach the point where you no longer even think about what others might be thinking.
