I've long been very concerned about what others will think about me, I've been worried about being negatively judged. It's really been holding me back in life. It's been effecting my behavior in all sorts of ways. I just have to accept that, some people are going to judge me and make false assumptions about me. That's life, that's how it is. Especially given how divided and tribal people have become nowadays, it is completely unavoidable. You cannot please everybody. I cannot control what others think. If people are judging me, that is their problem. And yes, I'm probably also overestimating how much others are thinking about me. If someone is preoccupied with judging/making assumptions about people. That is an unhealthy mindset that is going to cause them problems. It is their problem, not the people they are preoccupied with.
