No matter how much confidence a person has, you care what others think about you to some extent. But how much is too much?
Here are 12 signs you give too much importance to others’ opinions.
1. You let others determine your value
You constantly look at yourself through the eyes of other people. You always fail to keep up with their expectations.
2. Lose sleep over what others do or say
You always think you have done something wrong. But, it is not always about you – maybe something is happening with them.
3. Take everything personally
What others say often discourages you, even though you asked about it yourself. You take everything personally and see it as proof you are not good enough.
4. You choose your words carefully
You always want to say the right words at the right time. You always think first before you speak. Sometimes, you hold back from saying anything because you don’t want to say the wrong thing.
5. Why don’t you like me?
You want everyone to like you. Sometimes you even do the things you don’t want just to win someone over; you pretend to care about the same things. For example, you never talk about your hobbies; because you are sure others won’t approve of them.
6. Harmony is my second name
You want harmony and rarely get angry. Instead, you are peaceful, calm, and full of understanding when others are angry.
