Serious question. How to have the attitude of "I don't care (especially about what others may think of me)" at work???

Stop caring.

I like that! I don't think I judge people much but I am just extra harsh on myself all the time with high standards and feel others judge me the same 😔

We are all gonna die at one point or another, wtf should Susan’s complaint effect my happiness and wtf should my “per my previous email” effect Susan’s happiness.

It was awesome. Don’t explain. Just say no. Also “The life changing magic of not giving a f*ck” is lovely too.

Uncouple your self esteem from getting the approval of others.

Think about how much you think/care about other people at work. Then remember they probably think of you even less than that. 🙂

As you know, this isn't easy to do. I would start by actively trying to remind yourself every time you start to think about what others think, stop yourself, remind yourself it doesn't matter, and then think about what YOU think of yourself. Write it down each time if that helps. Over time, you will start to skip the thinking about what others think and move to just thinking about what you think, and the fear of what others think of you will lessen until you just don't think about it at all.

Once I realized that caring so much about what people at work thought of me led to overworking and would likely sacrifice personal relationships in the process, that did the trick. I have friends and family I care about way more.

Are you young?

Yes early 20s

They could be judging you but it doesn't matter bc they don't get a vote.

My mantra: I’m an a$$hole and I’m ok with it. You being not ok with it is your problem, not mine.

After reading a lot of posts and threads on this app, I can’t believe how many men get into relationships that are pretty much dependent on how much money they make and the lifestyle they could provide.
