Why people's opinion is so important for us?

How many times have you heard this question byyour mother, father or another person? How many times have you complied with the others, because of their opinion?

Why people's opinion is so important for us?Because we've heard so many times that it is important what others will think of us. And skillfully learn more from small to play roles, to be polite to people who are downright unpleasant, to thank the boring lady who gave us the gift that we don't like, to apologize, even when we're not guilty, to smile when we cry, etc. To say that we are ok, when we're not.

Must not our every action to be dictated by whether we will get approval or criticism, whether we will be accepted or rejected, whether we will become a laughing stock, and will be ridiculed. This would mean that we are living someone else's life and not our own. And if your mom, dad, and your other loved ones were forced to follow this pattern, then you can enrich it by your principles assert.

Live for yourself and not for the opinions of others!

Well, humans are social animals and as such we developed certain innate habits that help us survive in the wild. Of course, our environment has changed over the last 10000 years or so, but our genes still think we're living in caves in small communities. So the tribal nature still kicks in, and strong at that. It used to be very important what other people in the small 50-100 people group thought of you. If they had you for a loser, chances were you'll never get a mate and never have children. This was huge. Just as an interesting addition to the subject, it is believed that men have for this very reason an inborn anxiety to approach women they like. This is because way back one had to be extra careful not to be publicly rejected. Nowadays, rationally, who cares if you get rejected by a girl. You move on to the next. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions more available. But our inner "protector" still lives 10000 years in the past. He thinks that we're still in a cave and if you're seen being rejected by a girl, there are great chances that just because of that other girls that saw it will reject you as well. And besides that, they can communicate and as the news spreads over all 100 members of your tribe, you're finished. This is why men inherently have a hard time approaching new women and it takes a lot of conscious effort to overcome it and do it anyway. Guys that do it routinely do it easier than the others. And another interesting fact. If you do approach a few times in one place, it becomes a breeze. You just have to get past the first few approaches :) My 2 cents

I couldn't agree more. Life is so much better when you live it for yourself and for no one else but yourself! People will always have an opinion no matter what, you can never ever please everyone in this life.
I just stick to that motto.
Good article!

Because in my opinion we're not certain about ourselves, our mental state and goals and our peace of mind. And I agree with MMO too, it has a lot to do with society since the stone age.
