There was a time where I felt paranoid about what people thought of me. Part of our identity stems from what the outside view of us. That can be daunting. I used to go around thinking that this person thought that I was stupid, weird, or clingy. Most of the time I dropped it because it was taking all of my energy. People cannot worry about other people and pleasing them. I read somewhere that the fear of ‘looking stupid’ will only hold you back. So go ahead and and not care! At least you have balls to do what others wish they could.
