Do you care what other people think of you? 🌸

I do, to a certain extent because that's how human society works. Humans evolved to be socially conscious and it is in our very basic instincts that we are pleased when we get approval of many people, we feel happy when we are likeable to others around us. You need approval of people to be effective.
Needless to mention, you only need to care about what "right people" think about you. You don't need to be everyone's pleaser.
