I Care Too Much About the Opinions of Other People!

My name is Stacey and I let the opinions of others impact my life.

It feels weird seeing those words form a sentence, but it’s something that I’ve needed to address for such a long time.

It has gotten so bad that I feel bad talking about personal issues on my own blog! I tend to forget that I am human, and I can’t make myself happy if I let others dictate what I decide to do.

Part of me believes that sharing my experiences on my blog can help others who come across my posts realise that they aren’t alone.

The other part of me cringes at the idea, I can imagine people scrolling through just to mock me, and my writing.

I don’t know if either of scenarios are true, but living with the belief the latter is true has held me back for so long.


Do you struggle with this? What methods do you use to deal with this?

Comment and let me know!

  1. Not the only person. I also struggle with allowing people to influence my actions and choices. It’s a pervasive fear of upsetting someone or inconveniencing them in any way. I’ve seen people in my life (and had it done to me) cut off all communication and positive relationship until whatever conditions they had (both unspoken and spoken) were met. Seriously messed me up. Still working on it. So no, you’re not alone in feeling like that.

  2. Interesting reading this coming off an emotional intelligence course recently at work. It’s one of those emotional states or mindsets you try to avoid but is essential in some form of interactions. Finding that balance of taking opinion and emotion onboard to understand perspective without losing your rational sense is a difficult one.
