7 Ways To Stop Worrying About What Others Think
We get by. Think about a time when you were extremely anxious — say, before standing up to publicly speak, raising your hand in a big meeting, or even walking through a room of strangers.

We try to impress each other by saying what we think other people want to hear instead of letting our inner authentic voice guide us.
We all want to be liked and appreciated for our many talents, our ferocious intelligence, our good nature, our sparkling personality.
