don’t worry about what they think of you.
don’t worry about what they do to you.
and, please, PLEASE, don’t worry about what they are saying about you.
of course love and care for them; be generous, kind, and compassionate; consider them highly when you make decisions that might affect them; see them for all the good stuff they have to offer; give help and advice, and be empathetic…
but don’t worry about them! especially if you don’t know them and they don’t know you.
you know yourself best – you make decisions and choices based on a set of circumstances and thoughts that nobody, no matter how close they are, would be able to fully feel or understand. and, yes, of course you will make mistakes, but that is for you to eventually deal with, so move forward using your heart and judgment, not someone else’s.
besides, people aren’t thinking about you as much as you think. as my mom always reminded me (in the sweetest of ways):
you are just a blip on their radar. 🙂
