Teach sent me a motivational quote today: "Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality". Got me to thinking....how much stock do you place in other's opinions of you...do you let it affect decisions you are making in your life? Can a comment from someone wound you or keep you off-balance? Does that person's opinion mean more than your own?

Re:Actually Sherr, neither. They did spoil me a bit the older brothers the most they were 17 yrs older than me...so I hung with them most of the time. My youngest brother picked on me, he was oler than me but the youngest of the brothers. He picked on me until my oldest brothers taught me to kick his ass. I am not a fighter but if someone hits me I know how! Not really in my nature I'm a Lover! LOL Just ask Tom! suburbansweetheart write: Re: Did you get beat up alot or were you the princess...lol HDCouple4U2NV write: I like that one Demoman.

Yes, self esteem plays a big part. My opinion of me means more than others because I have to live with me, no one else does.When you like yourself and have self esteem it's easier to let others comments roll right off your back.

Jersey you are so right VIMP....if you aren't happy with yourself....you can't be happy with anything...no one can make you happy...except you. Privateer...not disagreeing with you BUT women get validation from their work too.....not just from what other people think of them....a job well done works for both sexes.

Here's my quote..."this is me, take it or leave it". I was not put on this earth to please anyone but myself. As long as I am happy with myself, that's all that matters. If you try to please everyone, you're job will never be done.

Re: privateer01 write: Re: longbeard52 write: What other people think of me is none of my business.
Now that sir is a classic qoute. I have found what I think of myself is often a great factor in what others think of me. As is what I choose to share concerning my opinion of them. Its shocking how often my opinion and thiers coincide. LOL I would venture to say...the level of caring with regard to other peoples opinion is directly related to where one gets thier validation. Do you get validation from your significant other? Do you get validation from your work? Your kids? I tend to get validation from doing my dead level best.
That is a great quote, tho I think its a book title. But I do live by it.

Re:Ya know thats it...no one I care about has ever been nasty to me. I never had drama in my life until I got on the internet and I guess I am not good at dealing with it cause I just have never dealt with it in my life where I come from, it's open friendships and honesty, sometimes too honest, but no back stabbing gossip. Just never had to deal with mean folks. Everyone has ups and downs God works that way. Some people just do not understand that cause they don't trust in God. redsunset write: Nancy....I admire your strength...I do unfortunatelky let what other people say affect me sometimes. It usually is someone that I care about....other people that I don't know, or don't like...I could care less....but someone close to me??...gets me everytime.

Isn't it how it is recieved from who delivers it and the stock you take in that person. We always have the coice to apply it or lose it. I had a someone tell me once that "I must think I am someone special" and I told them we are all special in our own way. Remember the song when we were kids Sticks and stones may break our bones, but names can never hurt me. Did I answer that right????

do you think women are more concerned about others' opinions than men...and if so...why?

Yes Men get thier validation from what they do...work etc. Women from who they are to others.
