  1. Isn’t that the truth!

    June 19, 2012
    • Yes – I like this quote! For me, getting this has come more with age than anything else. I used to care a lot more how ridiculous or silly I appeared in public. Stumbling or spilling something was so much more embarrassing when I was younger. I still don’t let myself be as silly as I could be, but maybe by the time I’m 80…

      • I agree, I think I care less what others think of me the older I get. This was the hardest thing to discuss with my fifth graders. They (especially the girls) were so preoccupied with other girls talking about them and worrying about what others thought of them. It’s a developmental thing, but hard to make them understand how unimportant it is in the greater scheme of life.

  2. Couldn’t agree more….Tell my daughter this all of the time. 🙂

  3. I fully agree! You’re also right that this realisation comes with age 🙂

    • I’m looking forward to the age when I don’t care much at all what other people think of me. I’m not as free with myself as I’d quite like to be yet.

      • Haha this reminds me of that poem “when I am an old woman, i shall wear purple”,and as the poem says, maybe we ought to practice a little now 😀

        June 22, 2012
        • That’s so funny, because I was thinking about that poem when I replied. That line, “I shall wear purple,” kept running through my mind. There is a Red Hat Society here in America, for ladies of a certain age. It’s based off of that poem, and they wear red hats and purple clothes when they meet.

          I red that poem in Literature class in the 8th grad, and never forgot about it. Isn’t it funny how some things stay with you? Maybe this issue is in the back of a lot of people’s minds a lot.

  4. Hahaha! This is true. I need to remember this!

    June 21, 2012
    • This one pops into my head every once in a while, and I remember that other people are as wrapped up in themselves as I am in myself – they don’t really care if I act silly or not.

      June 21, 2012
      • I know! That’s the only thing that prevents my day from being ruined due to over-thinking a situation. But it only comes to my mind After I’ve worried over something for at least half an hour. 😛

        June 22, 2012
        • That sounds perfectly normal to me! At least I hope so, because I do the same thing. It takes me a little time to rationalize it out.

          June 22, 2012
  5. hehe – that’s a good quote 🙂

    When you’re young you worry what people think about you
    as you get older you care less and less what people think
    one day you realize that nobody was thinking about you anyway 😉

    June 22, 2012
    • Hi Pete! Exactly right! People may notice me or look at me or whatever, but what I’m doing is not as important to them as I feel like it is. So why not just be myself? No matter how embarrassing that self is, lol!

      June 22, 2012
      • hehe yeah – I figure if you’re wasting time worrying about what people think of you – you’re too distracted to be doing something totally awesome 😉
