One of the reasons I’m writing about this is because I was asked why we continue to worry about what other people think. Yes I’ve had lots of training, in fact more than I care to remember! However when I write about specific topics, I’m sharing that I have also experienced and learned from going through it myself so I know what it’s like for other people.
I based most things I did or didn’t do on what other people might think about me, this went on until I started to learn how to make changes in my 40’s. It took work and it didn’t happen over-night, it also changed my life for the better.
When I look back, there’s always one instance that sticks in my mind. Someone I was friendly with wanted a specific kind of bread, for what I now can’t remember, which could only be found at a bakery about 35 miles from where we lived. She wasn’t willing to drive that far so I said I would go. (London traffic was nothing to sneeze at even back then.)
She wasn’t sick, she had a car, she could have used a different bread and I didn’t have to offer to get it. However I thought if I didn’t do this she probably wouldn’t like me anymore. I was more worried about what she would think of me than what I needed to do for my own family. So, I traipsed across London to get someone bread just because I was worried about what she would think if I didn’t do that for her!
As Lao Tzu says, “I was a prisoner to this kind of thinking for many years before I changed my thinking, my self- limiting beliefs, set boundaries and stopped giving up my power.
