I Don’t Care What You Think and I Don’t Care If You Don’t Like Me.

Perhaps I am just missing a gene (click here to read my blog on missing the fake gene) but it amazes some people that I really will not bend over backward to impress them and that  I am willing to let go of an frenemy (Click my blog here on frenemies) at the drop of a dime.  The reason why, I don’t care what you think or even if you like me at all,  is because it is possible that I may not be too fond of you either.

I don’t care what you think about me or what you want me do to.  I have a brain in my head, I form my own opinions, and I have my thoughts that dictate my own actions.  I do not need anyone else to do that for me.

I Don't Care What You Think and I Don't Care If You Don't Like MeI don’t understand why I see people fall apart over what people think about them?  Why do I see people beg and plead for someone to be their friend?  You have yourself, are you not enough? Why are you trying to convince someone else to be around you if they don’t want to be?  Or why try to make someone like you if they do not like you as is?

I recall in grade school, when all of my friends decided to shun me based off a rumor that my “friend” told them.  They went out of their way to ignore me and not speak to me.  And I decided to not care. I can recall that when they decided not to play with me, I found a new friend that day and started playing with her.  That was that.  There was no begging to be my friend.  No apologizing for something I did not do.  None of that.  It was never in my DNA to do that.

And after a few months of this, my so called friends all of a sudden decided to be my friends again.  I came to learn when you do not care what other people think,  you take their power away.  Many people want you to care about what they think and they insert their opinion in your life when it does not belong there.  The sole reason why they want to do that is because they want to control you and deep down they need validation from you that their opinions matters.

I have learned that I am not build that way, I cannot do that.  If I had listened to other people then I would not be where I am today (Click to read my blog here on believing in yourself).

I am me, there's no changing that. So why apologize or conform myself for someone else. Click To Tweet

I Don't Care What You Think and I Don't Care If You Don't Like Me

I am always going to be me and I am always going to be in my life.  Other people are not guaranteed to be in my life, therefore there is no need to try tomake them like me. Some people change their looks, their hair, their outfits, where they live, or their car based on other people’s opinion.  Well unless those people are going to make those monthly car payments for you, then why are you buying something off of others people’s approval.  The phrase “be yourself” sound so cliché.  But it is true.  Who else can you be, but yourself?

When you spend all your time trying to imitate what or who other people want you to be, that is when you will loose your mind, because you can never be what someone else wants you to be.  And you will drive yourself crazy trying to change yourself based on what other people think about you. Life is too short to live by other’s peoples standards. I am not going to die if you do not want to be my friend. I don’t care what you think and I don’t care if you don’t like me.  I am too busy out here living my life, to sit here and think about what other people think about what I am doing.  And more than anything, I strongly urge that anyone reading this stop caring about what everyone else has to say about you as well.
