I Don’t Care If You Care That I Care

2 Nov

How do you know when you care too much about what people think? You have to care a little bit, otherwise we would be a lot like animals right? If I didn’t care at all about what other people thought I suppose I could run naked down the street. Although that would probably lead to arrest and that’s a while different blog post.
Over the years I really have learned to care much less about what other people think of me. I will admit that I do care a little bit. I want to be liked. I want people to think I’m nice. I want people to think I’m a good Mother, sister, friend. I have realized that if they don’t think I am any of these things that’s okay too. It doesn’t mean that I’m not a great girl, it just means they can’t see it right now.
My oldest daughter asked me why I wear makeup. I used to wear makeup so other people would think I was pretty. Now, I wear makeup because it makes me feel pretty.
