Do you know what others are thinking about you?
Why is it important to us to speculate about what others think about us? Does it really matter? Analyze why we are eager to find out others' opinions about ourselves.
Are you worried about what others are thinking about you and plan your actions carefully after considering what may be your answers if people ask you such and such questions? If you are thinking like that you may not be alone and there are many whose actions depend on thinking what may be the reaction of others if they got to know the activities. There are many things before doing which something pulls us back and questions like 'People will start saying this' or 'People will not take this thing easily' pop up in our mind. In many cases, people cannot initiate new ventures thinking of these things. It may be anything that ranges from starting something new, making new connections outside your community or relationship. This has got nothing to do with unacceptability because the question of acceptability/unacceptability to others arises only if others are affected by the actions. If others are not affected in any way why should they even waste their time on thinking such things?
I found something interesting by observing such behaviour of people whose actions are dependent on what others may think or say. When we communicate with each other, many people love to discuss what others are doing or whether somebody has done it right or wrong. For many, a significant part of the conversation is related to the actions of others which are just a wastage of time and gossip. Those who take part in such types of conversations tend to be prone to take decisions/actions thinking what others may say or think. Members, what do you say?
