“What will others think” is the thing we women always think. “Will they like this dress?” ,“Will every one like me?” and so much more. It’s every time about those “they’s” who won’t be even there with us when we need them. As a woman, we are expected to follow certain norms, which are mostly associated with the choice, views and comments of other people. It has become like “This is all normal” task for many of us. Seeing things through other’s eyes , judging things through other’s views , hearing through other’s ears , and breathing through other’s hearts. Damn! It’s always about O.T.H.E.R.S , right?
These days it is literally a crime , when we don’t consider what “OTHERS” think. Seriously! People see you as if you are going to drown yourself in the Atlantic ocean the next moment. This absolutely does not mean that, you are asked to be a brat and shut your ears to the whole earth. Of course, its good in considering different angles in anything we do, which is possible only by interacting , with every one and every thing. But that little does not mean that we reply upon their thoughts and become their thinking. Doing this not just eats up your uniqueness it also kills your existence, like a slow poison. The minute you stop caring what other’s think, is the minute you start being yourself. It might seem difficult but remember: It’s not impossible. Don’t change so that people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you. So, all the ladies out there, remember ! You’ve got everything to take the world on your side. Never sit back thinking about what others are going to think about you.
