You’ll Always Care What Everyone Thinks

Pretending you don’t only causes problems.

Pretending you don’t care doesn’t shield you from what other people think. It only delays your ability to process your emotions.

Sometimes, you have to marinate in the pain for a little while. Admit that some part of you feels hurt, even if it was by some little twerp online, or a stranger who passed you on the sidewalk.

Life would be easier if every random insult didn’t affect us. But then we’d be robots.

Our stance toward others’ opinions of us shouldn’t be all-or-nothing. You can scale it.

Even your friends aren’t supposed to support you no matter what. They have the right to tell you that you suck, from a place of love and respect.
