Caring about other people’s opinions is the biggest obstacle to your happiness and the thing that will constantly draw you back and keep you from progressing in life. And why is that?
Glad you asked.
So many people these days, especially teenagers and young adults, tend to suppress their desires and even their true personalities because they fear of what other people would think about their actions. “What will my mom say?”, “What will grandpa say?”, “How will my classmates feel about me doing that?”. All of these are frequent and seemingly harmless obstacles, small thoughts that make you question your most genuine wishes and sometimes determine you to give up on some things, ideas or even precious passions of yours because you are worried that your definition of “right” does not correspond to theirs.
