How to not care what people think?

Anyone have advice on how to stop caring about what other people think? I feel like I worry too much about this at tomes. For example I’m on maternity leave and pregnant again. I’m fine with telling family and friends but I’m dreading telling my boss and colleagues about this. I feel really embarrassed about it. I know I shouldn’t really care about what they think but I just can’t shake that feeling off?

Focus on yourself and what makes you happy rather than other people

Look at this. I find it extremely relevant and it's probably the best advice I've ever got. You need to asses your reactions, rather than what people actually think.

Also, you need to understand that people's opinions are not facts, they're just opinions. If I say that Nancy's stupid, that doesn't make Nancy stupid, it's just my opinion on Nancy and it might as well be NOT true. And even if it is, it's not my problem.

I split life into 3: my business, others' business & the universe business. You'd be shocked how little of it is actually your business.

Yeap, I'm in therapy. It helps a great bunch.

Best of luck, OP!
