Think you want to pass a group of people. So you will get shyness and feel uncomfortable. You may think they will judge your action, cloths, or walking pattern. If you keep overthinking about negative judgement, you will never walk through that group of people.

So in this situation, you can say to yourself ‘stop caring’ and pass those people. If you still think they are judging you. Keep saying to yourself the same thing.

Say “stop caring, stop caring, stop caring, stop caring, stop caring”.

Personally, I do this and it is a really effective way to focus on you with a short time. When I got a negative feeling about what other people think about me. I just say that word again and again and do what I want to do.

If you do something wrong, people around you may judge you. But how long it will remember them? They will forget it within one week even in 5 minutes. Because they are busy with their own problems. They don’t have time to spend on your problems.

    Hey Gihan!

    Maybe everyone of us faces this fear of being judged and criticized. I am this kind of person too, and often this fear has something to do with our haughtiness, or let’s just call it “big ego”. Being haughty makes us feel quite unable to cope with the idea of being judged or doubted by others.

    Finding our own type of people may be difficult sometimes, especially if we are rather lonely persons. But when we have already found them, I guess it will become easier to face out judgment and criticism. Also, we should put well into our minds what you said about people who forget after judging, because they have their own problems :).

    Thanks for providing us advice about overcoming this kind of fear, that may be blocking us from important projects in life!

    Best regards,

    #2 is the hardest of your suggestions for me. Even when I know I should be so attached to the outcome or I haven’t been given complete enough instructions to do the best job possible, I have a really hard time saying f**k it! I think a lot of that stems from my parents and their own pursuits of perfection (which I, of course, spent a great many years observing). At least I’m aware of it now and can continue to work on it!

    This was really hard for me a few months ago too. What really helped with my
    family judging my business was by just telling them about it. Explaining why and
    what it could also entail later on if I was successful, really seemed to
    help. Showing examples of people and businesses in my industry who were
    very successful helped as well – people are sceptical because they don’t know
    anyone with success in what you do. Your points will definitely come of help in the future. I will bookmark this page right away.

    Such an honest and open post, makes a refreshing change. I am always on the look out for ways I can improve myself and you have given me some I had not thought about before.

    You made such a good point about how others forget so quickly becasue they are too interested in themselves. I often say to the children, when they are having spats with others, that the other person has not given what they said another thought. Sometimes though, we take things to heart and it’s hard to let them go.

    Personally I have been working on not caring whether someone has an issue about me, as long as I know I have conducted myself properly then they can think how they like. Otherwise they have power over me.
