I still care what most people think of me. If they don't like me ? You can't win them all ! But I still care.
I don't think I will ever stop "caring," but about 6 or 7 years ago I "really" realized (knew in my gut) that whether they thought well of me or less favorably of me was a comment about their limitations, not mine.
I care about what people think about me, and I try to look my best, and act my best, but I really don't care about what people think of me. I think I just realised that it doesn't matter what people think of you; you just need to be yourself.
I care what people think, but I can't please everyone. Sometimes I can't please anyone. I do my best and move one.
