“Be yourself. People don’t have to like you and you don’t have to care.” By unknown
Please focus on the keywords here: “have to”. We really have no control over what people think of feel. We might have some influence, but that is where it ends. Because true flings and thoughts are inside, hidden from via unless expressed; we truly never know them. People choose to show us what they want. That’s the end of that. We can be grateful to them, react to them, or ignore them. That’s our choice. That’s our true feelings and thoughts on the mater.
With this in mind, ask yourself if you really have any control over the thoughts and feelings of others, then remember that often paraphrased piece of wisdom about knowing what we can and cannot change. If you can’t change it, let it be and move on. You can’t change/control peoples thoughts or feelings, so there’s no point in worrying about them, much less caring about them. Yes, I understand that sounds like an invitation to being irresponsible, but it’s more a reminder that you have a choice. Of course, there are consequences to every choice you make. Those consequences are all you can consider and act upon in making the choice.
