The less you care

The less you care

When I saw this picture I automatically thought of being a slave to the opinions of other people. I can think of countless people who have made bad decisions that weren’t right for them because they were worried about what others might think. Growing up, I wanted to be a doctor. I was never grossed out by blood and guts and I wanted to make a tangible difference in the lives of others. However, after a very rude awakening in my very first college level biology class, I decided that I was better suited for the social sciences. But I digress. My point is that it’s stupid to let what other people think of you dictate major life decisions. At the end of the day you can’t escape from you. The most successful people in  life are those who don’t care what other people think. They take the road less traveled and they make no apologies for it. I heard someone say that in order to get what others won’t get, you have to do what others won’t do. And in order to do what you need to do, you have to realize that your actions won’t always make sense to other people. At the end of the day people will think and believe what they want to. Let them.

  1. Excellent thinking! Few things can debilitate us as much as living our lives out through someone else’s eyes.

    Allow me to slightly disagree… I think that there still needs to be a level of care. There are some people who don’t care so much that they jack up their entire lives and wonder why people don’t take them seriously. We can pretend that appearance and reputation does not matter but it does. Having a good reputation shouldn’t drive who you are but it should play a role. Hence, one should select a few quality individuals that can let you know what’s up and it you are being wise in your decisions and actions.
