It’s a feeling you know too well and you often ask yourself: “Do I hate myself? Did I do them wrong? They definitely hate me, they have every reason in the world to do so. I should lock myself in the house because I’m constantly destroying everything.” Do you know this monologue?
Sometimes we all go through that and care a little too much about what other people think. Everything from clothing to professional positions, you know that people are judging what you do and it seriously scares you. But you shouldn’t!
You know best what is best for you. If you really like those high-heeled ankle boots that your sister insists are horrible, wear them anyway. If you truly believe that the decisions you make at work are good, stick with them. The power is upon you!
It can be hard to tolerate harsh opposition from others, and while constructive criticism is important in any situation, you know when you’re taking their opinions too seriously.
Some of us care more than we should, for reasons ranging from education to astrology. All you need to know is that, most of the time, caring about what you think is far more important than caring about what other people think.
4 zodiac signs that care too much about the opinion of others:
You are very gentle and affectionate and like to be sociable, but with that comes more emotionality and comparison to others.
You hate being alone, especially because you always have to be reassured by other people that you’re doing a good job. You need the validation of others.
Because you are so affectionate, you expect the same in return. When you don’t get it, you immediately assume that those people think something bad about you.
When you’re not the loving, gentle version of yourself, you can take things very seriously. When you ask for someone’s opinion, you take it to heart.
You choose your words carefully and expect the same from others. Don’t take other people’s thoughts more seriously than your own!
You don’t have much confidence in yourself, but try to follow your heart once in a while and you can end up in a better place than you thought.
Although you are usually a very balanced person, the opinions of others affect you. You can be quite shy and this is mostly because you can be extremely critical of both yourself and others.
You know what it’s like to worry and focus on other people’s details, so you assume everyone else is doing the same.
Sometimes you work non-stop and never play, so when someone criticizes your work, you really take it to heart. It’s more than just a saying, it’s something you’ll think about for days on end.
Indeed, the way you care about others is also what causes your anxiety and shyness. Try to focus on yourself, take things easy and not worry about what others are doing.
Criticism is a two-way street and it will be a much smoother ride once you add a little compassion.
Being around people is very important to you. You hate being alone, so in turn you find yourself surrounded by a lot of different opinions.
This is usually well tolerated by you, as you are peaceful and fair. But every now and then, someone says something to you that really affects you.
You can hold a grudge against other people’s words, and that’s only because you hate confrontation and avoid it at all costs.
The problem is, the only person you’re really hurting is yourself, and you tend to feel sorry for yourself after a while
Take a step back, reflect on the criticism, and you may find some helpful tips to help you differentiate between what you need to hear and what will hurt you in the long run.
You are one of the most emotional and sensitive zodiac signs, which is not a bad thing by any means, but it means that you care too much about other people’s opinions and are very affected by their words or gestures.
Sometimes you play the victim and it’s hard for others to confront you. You hate it when people disagree with you, and this can sometimes cloud your judgment about a certain situation.
You do this mostly because you want everyone to like you, and it’s really just a sign of your insecurities. We all get criticism, but you let it affect your relationships.
Remember that the people who love you are on your side! They are most likely saying things out of love and for your own good, otherwise they shouldn’t be part of your life!
