One of the leading causes of anxiety is worrying too much about what other people think/say.
Besides causing anxiety, caring what other people say/think prevents authenticity. Therefore, you must avoid this behavior because its disastrous effects can prevent you from progressing.
For you to stop caring about other people’s opinions/thoughts, you must identify the primary causes of this behavior and deal with them effectively.
I managed to pinpoint the three main factors that make you succumb to this behavior.
An insecure person doubts his abilities and believes there’s nothing significant s/he can do.
Insecurity makes you care what other people say because it loves seeking approval. When you don’t believe in yourself, you’ll always seek people’s opinions before doing something.
Build your self-esteem because you’ll never seek people’s approval if you have high self-worth.
2.A Huge Ego
The ego is a feeling of self-importance.
A huge ego makes you believe that you are very important. It thus ensures that you care what others think/say because it always wants people to talk about you.
Besides this, a massive ego will make you concerned with other people’s thoughts/opinions because it thinks everybody is thinking about you.
Embrace humility because you won’t need people to reinforce your sense of self-importance when you are humble.
3.Lack of Something Useful to Focus On
Your mind will lean towards factors such as negativity, gossip, and thinking about other people’s opinions if it doesn’t have something important to focus on.
Set goals and focus on them because you’ll have no time to think about people’s opinions when you are focused on your goals.
If you care so much about other people’s opinions, you can eliminate the habit by building self-esteem, practicing humility, and finding something useful to focus on.
I seldom care about people’s opinions, and I find my life incredibly peaceful. I often do whatever I want, whenever I want, and I follow my ‘unrealistic,’ dreams because I managed to ignore what people think or say about me.
