  • Over the internet? Not in the slightest.
    In my daily face-to-face interactions with strangers? A lot. The thought of making a negative impression on even the random cashier or the person who happened to be my waiter is a slightly panic-inducing thought. It's probably why I avoid social interaction with strangers. Weirdly enough, the closer I am with someone, the less I care about what they think of me. I figure it's because if I've managed to get close with someone, I've passed the weirdness test and been deemed acceptable. But, with strangers, you never know.
    I'm not sure why I'm so caught up on trying to make a positive impression on people who will, in all likelihood, be inconsequential to my life. It's a tendency I'm trying very hard to curb.

    • I understand and can agree there 😊 I’ve got better but as I said before to you I use to get heart palpitations queuing for food. 😂 so I do know what it’s like to care so much about a random strangers impression even though it reality it doesn’t matter.

  • thats quite simple.
    A: People that either is, might be or know of my professional life, my job and career- my childrens teachers or something, they are in the "yes, but only because I take a great deal of pride in the things I really give myself 100% about; it matters, even though I actually resent the fact that sometimes I have to put on a show, act up, be nice in matters I dont want to -but it is important to me how people see me in my job and with my kids.
    That taken off the table; the few people I really keeps close and love, of course, it does - a great deal! Mostly in ways like I would feel SO terrible if I unintentionally genuinely made them sad because of me acting like a clown or what have you. I dont like putting people I love in situations that they are truly affected badly by, because of me ,
    But appart from that, I am completely indifferent to other people and how they might see me or think about me. I can always argue my actions feeling good, proud and head up high, so what people may think when I drives down to fill up the car because I just remembered and it might save me time the morning after - and I am in my pyjamas or what people sometimes goes stiff-upperlip about.. jeez.

  • 0.00%, you're entitled to your own opinion on me but it won't affect me, I don't need validation from human trash to feel good like others do. You can be sure friend or family but I won't give a single fuck. Words can be manipulative if played right.

  • Be lying if I said I don't at all. If recent comments weren't sufficient, I do have low self esteem, but for all my issues with myself, I still hate most people, thus their opinions hardly matter to me. It's when they start in on the problems I already have with myself that it starts getting to me.

  • Not in the slightest. I know you said you care when it's friends and family but the thing I've found at least with friends is they'll turn on you in a heartbeat if the situation happens to suit them or if they think they'll benefit from it. So i don't see why I should care what they think.

  • Some; family, friends, neighbors, classmates, coworkers and love interests exclusively. If I haven't invested in you and vice versa, I may be interested in your opinion, but I'm not at all invested in it emotionally.

  • Lol everyone cares, just some people are proactive and some aren't. This is so stupid. Interviews, work, relationships, family, friends. What other people think of you matters. I'd argue if you don't care then you suck at life.

  • I don't need a lot of validation from others, tbh.

    I care what friends and family think, obviously, but beyond that, it's not something I really think about that often.

  • Only those people who have a direct impact on my life. The rest of the human race can go to hell. There are some I consider friends that I would like to have a good opinion from but they're not that close so it can be discarded if not.

    • I see. Well that's good to know. I have a son that cracks me up too.😎

    • Cool. I love being a parent. I'm a full-time single father. My little guy is 8.

      Yeah my answers are rarely actually helpful. I have a hard time being serious unless it's absolutely necessary...

  • Hah. I lack care there. Ain´t nobody is determining my value by their opinions. It´s their perspective which ain´t my problem.
