5 Reasons Why Other People’s Opinions Of You Don’t Matter

Read Time:5 Minute, 15 Second

How many times have you allowed other people’s opinions of you keep you from being the person you deep down inside know you should be? How many times did you allow others’ opinions of you distract you from your own path in life?

If you’ve spent some time in this life, then it’s safe to assume you’ve been criticized, talked down on or told to follow a path you know deep down isn’t meant for you at some point.

You also know how it hurts and how you struggled through it. You probably wish you never listened to some of those advice. The truth is, everyone has an opinion, and those same opinions differ slightly from person to person. Also, you aren’t obligated to follow other people’s opinions about you.

While it hurts when others hurl intentionally-hurtful opinions at you. It still doesn’t matter what people think or say about you. The final decision lies with you. People can say anything they want to say and think whatever they want to think. Don’t focus on them, rather put your focus on who you want to be. The more you focus on who you want to be, the more you become just that. Don’t let others’ opinions define you. Here are 5 reasons why:

1. It’s only because they are that way.

People change and so do their choices and opinions . Someone may suggest one thing at one time and something else some other times. How other people see you is mostly a reflection of who they themselves are and they are only offering what they have.

It’s doesn’t matter who’s opinion it is. You are not obligated to follow it. You have your own experiences, wants and life to live.

2. What’s good for someone else might not be good for you

Why are we all different and do different things? Why isn’t every one an actor, an athlete or a physician? Why are some people successful and some others super successful? Why does bill prefers pizza and Jane slice bread? The answer? We are all different.

We are the product of different experiences, different upbringings, different values and beliefs, different education and so on. What’s good for one person may not be good for another. That’s the beauty of the world.

We are all at different levels of awareness, knowledge, enlightenment etc. And so we won’t all see things the same light.

People may seemingly have your best interest at heart when they give you an advice or offer a suggestion but the problem is, they don’t know what will make you happy and what you desire and deserve. They may want to judge you based on the present circumstance but you shouldn’t heed to what they think or say. You know deep down what you want and what you should pursue.

3. You are the one stuck with the end result

You know the result you desire to get and the life you want to live. People won’t always be with you. Nobody will ever be as invested in your life as you. Only you know what is best for you, and that entails learning from your own choices. The only way you will ever truly learn is through making your own decisions, taking full responsibility for them, and that way if you do fail, at least you can learn from it wholeheartedly, as opposed to blame-shifting it onto somebody else. If you want to live a meaningful and fulfilled life, you have to own your choices and learn from them. This will build your character and help you grow.

When people give you their suggestions or even orders, there is no risk for them. They don’t have to live with your choices—but you do, and so, others opinions should never be more important than your opinion.

It’s your life and you can choose to to live it the way you really want to, you can choose to think the way you want to think, follow the people you want to follow and aspire to be who you want to be.

4. They know little about you or your journey.

Most people make the mistake of always wanting to wish their opinions on others without knowing what the person has gone through, is going through or is willing to go through to achieve their desires.

The most successful people in the world were ridiculed and shamed the most times for their dreams. How much do you think they were made fun of and scoffed at after failing over and over again?

The point is, you have to do what’s right for you, and not base your decision on what others think you should be doing. Nobody is perfect. Nobody has the right to declare you unfit or unworthy of something. Nobody knows everything. You have the right to experience things yourself, you have the right to make mistake and learn.

As long as you’re doing the right things in this world with the right motivation, it doesn’t matter what other people think of you. Most people pass judgement from a very superficial, very limited outside knowledge about you or the situation you’re in. You shouldn’t allow their limited knowledge limit you.

5. It’s impossible to please everyone

People in the same profession and even the same circle can have differing opinions about the same basic issue and that’s because we are all different and see things differently.

It doesn’t matter how educated or intelligent you are, there’re those that will always have a differing opinion to yours.

No need trying to be nice all the time and trying to make everyone happy, that will only make your life miserable. No matter how hard you try to be nice to everyone and take their advice, and try to please everyone, some people will still complain and not be satisfied and you will eventually end up becoming resentful.

The truth is, you can’t please everyone and that’s ok. It’s ok to seek counsel when you need it, it’s ok to admit a mistake when you make it. What you should never do is live your life hanging on the words of everyone around you. You won’t come out of it happy.
