Chapter 7, Page 12, Book 18

Be yourself.  Your’e okay. And it really doesn’t matter what other people think.

Taylor Schilling

 Be yourself.  It doesn’t matter what others think

We spend so much energy worrying about what others think of us, it’s amazing we have any left to use for other things.  Don’t let their stuff get in your way. 

Dave Markowitz

It doesn’t matter what others think of you, it’s what you think of yourself that matters. It’s in our nature to want to be liked and accepted, however this often leads to people worrying too much about what others are thinking of them.

What people think of you cannot change who your are or what you are worth, unless you allow them to.  Only you know what’s best for you.  What is best for somebody else, can be the worst thing for you.  We are all so unique.

We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.

Dave Ramsey

When people give you suggestions or ever orders of what to do, there is no risk for them.  They don’t have to live with your choices, but you do.

Life is short so why spend it worrying about other peoples opinions. It’s impossible to live up to the expectations of others so there is no point in trying to do so.  We just have to make sure that one of the people we please is ourselves.

I do it because I can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn’t

Anything is possible, if you think you can.

Wow. I loved Dave Markowitz' quote. Then your first and second paragraphs so resonated. I felt you were speaking to me, and encouraging me personally!

I think the only one we should live for whose opinions matter is of course God. And we know that he loves us unconditionally. We definitely should not matter what others think about us and we should be careful how we think of others.



be your true authentic self. "We are all so unique."
