6 REASONS WHY IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU.
When we really think about it, much of our lives are often built around what other people think of us. Trying to impress others, being afraid of the opinions of others, and not doing what we want because of what we think goes on, or will go on, in other people’s heads can often dictate and harm our lives. Even the most confident people with the world at their feet most likely think a lot about what at least some people think of them.
In order to live the life we want, we must stop living in the eyes of others and embrace our own freedom. Here are six reasons why it really doesn’t matter what other people think of you.
1. You only get one life and it’s yours
In years to come, you will regret not doing what you wish because of what you thought others might think of you. The most powerful truth in the world is that you only get one life and if you allow other people’s opinions to dictate the course of that life then it may very well be wasted. We are so lucky to be alive that it is the most profound shame to not make of life the absolute most of it we can.
2. It is only shallow people that form negative opinions of what you do
Open, caring and intelligent people don’t look down on others for how they live their lives. The only people that do spend a lot of time fussing and stressing over the lives of others are the small-minded, ignorant and vacuous. Those people, because they don’t have enough going on in their own lives, they have to focus on other people’s lives and behaviour. Which begs the question, why would you care what such people think in the first place and why would you let them influence your life?
3. The opinions of others only describe themselves
If someone passes judgement on another saying they are ‘weird’, ‘boring’, ‘useless’ etc., then that is no judgement on the other person, it is a judgement on themselves. If a person really was any of those things why would they be spending all that time fussing over them and thinking about them? Such judgements reflect a weak-minded and insecure person.
4. No one knows your story but you
How can anyone pass judgement on anyone’s life if they haven’t walked in their shoes? Smart people understand that we all have our own path in life and that we alone must walk it and experience it. Therefore, you should never let other’s opinions influence your life when they haven’t seen, felt and experienced what you have. Only you know what is best for you.
5. You must live authentically
To live authentically means that we are honest with others, but more importantly, we are honest with ourselves. It means that we do not live a life of fake representations whereby we put on a mask and act to the world and pretend to be someone we are not. To live authentically is perhaps the most important thing we can do.
6. People don’t actually care
The truth of the matter is people don’t actually care what you do very much. The vast majority of people are caught up in their own lives, and do not have time to care about what you are doing. Think about it. Do you spend hours and hours thinking about what other people are doing or thinking about one embarrassing thing someone did years ago. Obviously not. Simply put, those that care don’t matter, and those that matter don’t care.
Happy New year 2021 out with the old in with the new.

May your day begin and end with a SMILE on your face, LOVE in your heart, and HAPPINESS in your soul! Make it a lovely day, my friends! Happy New year to you all, Love from The world of inspiration. J.W 🙏 💙
HE WAS ONLY 19 YEARS OLD
Frankly I don’t know where to start as I’m here once again thrust into the unknown. Another brother has lost a child this time to Covid19. This is 2 nephew’s and a niece in three years, that’s 1 loss a year… I’m broken and deeply saddened is this even going to end!.
I can’t even think of the words for what I’m feeling. He was just a child 19 year old, he had everything going for him. Another close member of the family that I’ve watched grow up from a tiny beautiful gorgeous little baby, that’s grown up alongside my children and became one of their best friends and was a big part of our lives.
I am beyond broken and devastated. He was the young and becoming famous member of the family of whom we was so so proud of. Before lockdown he was in talks to travel to Japan for his wrestling. He was a true studying artist He had a cracking career ahead of him.
He was taken.
19 Year old Cameron Wellington past on the 19th November after deteriorating further, Well you gave it your all Cameron, even checked yourself into the hospital. Doctors were freaked out by that with his condition. He had a blood clot on his lungs and heart and his blood was burning him from the inside like acid to the point he had to be put in a coma. Then he had to go through not one but two operations within hours of each other but he didn’t complain nor was he scared. He truly was a fighter to the end and lived up to his wrestling reputation. Your suffering is over and you’re in a better place with the rest of your family to look after you now. We’re never going to forget you or any of the great memories you gave. We love you and we’re gonna miss you R.I.P. Don’t get too comfortable with the peace and quiet up there from us it’s not forever this is not the end.
If you were ever to meet Cameron he just had the biggest heart you could ever imagine, an infectious smile, big personality, anyone who’s ever met him would say he was just a wonderful young man and I shall truly miss him and so will many. He left us too soon but left a small legacy behind just to well miss to ever be forgotten.
“Treasured in my heart you’ll stay, until we meet again some day. Rest in peace.” Cameron Wellington “🙏 💙
Caution Take it seriously! COVID19
“I would urge everyone to be very guarded in terms of assuming that this is just another cold or flu virus – it is not there’s no such thing as invincibility from this virus it’s taking our children too!!” Here is the evidence Young people really need to take this seriously, they’re not immune to this disease.” Please be cautious no one has an exemption certificate! It shows no mercy.
Here is his GoFundMe page please show support during this time for a young 19 year old Cameron Wellington Passed away with COVID19 leaving Mom, Dad and 5 siblings behind. Please share this post on to your pages that would be great too! Please don’t stop donating Cameron’s parents really wish to give him the professional send off that he truly deserves! It’s the last thing that they can do for him. Thank you for all your support.👍 🙏💙
You need to understand how precious time is.
In the meantime every day find time to talk with someone you don’t know. Listen to their story. Do it in person. Learn from them. Be your brother’s keeper, your sister’s shelter. When a neighbour is in need or a thirsty young mind is denied the challenges and opportunities to grow and flourish, or a sister or brother is crushed by a purposefully flawed criminal justice system that rewards winning rather than justice, find a way to do something about it now.
If you have a teacher or mentor who made a great or even small impact on your life, tell them. Call them, write to them, let them know what a wonderful impact they had on you. Life is too short not to validate the ones who have changed our lives in a profound way. Then there will be no regrets when they pass on because you already told them what was in your heart, and your life will be richer for it in ways that you never dreamed. It’s not about being perfect.
Young people need to know that the things that make you successful at school, like following rules, working the hardest and being perfect, are not what will make you happy outside of school. Follow your instincts, experiment, try things out, talk to people “way out of your professional league,” and keep dreaming big dreams. There is always a way out no matter how bad it seems — that job, that career path, that relationship — trust yourself enough to let it go if it is making you question your self-worth or it isn’t what you want to be remembered for. God bless you all and please take care of you and your loved ones.🙏💙°*”˜.•°*”˜💙🙏 ˜”*°•.˜”*°💙🙏
Please take care and really look after yourselves out there…
Wishing you health, peace, safety and empowerment Xxx ~Joanne Wellington ~ 🙏🏻

Anyone can relate to this…
“Mom, can I sleep at Grandma’s tonight ?
I heard in the car, this morning…
When I managed to turn around, to see my child, it made me go back to the past, with just one sentence…
She was no longer within my reach.
I travelled far…
When did time go by and make us adults full of boring priorities?
We fight every day, for something we’re not even sure we really want…
When in fact, grandma’s house is what everyone needs to be happy.
Grandma’s house, is where the hands of the clock take a vacation with us and the minutes unhurriedly arrive.
Grandma’s house is where a simple pasta and homemade bread seem to have different flavours, delicious…
Grandma’s house is where an innocent afternoon, can last for an eternity of games and fantasies.
Grandma’s house is where the cupboards hide old clothes and mysterious tools.
Grandma’s house is where the closed boxes become chests of secret treasures, ready to be unveiled.
Grandma’s house is where toys rarely come ready, they are invented on the spot.
Grandma’s house, is where everything is mysteriously possible, magic happens and without worries.
Grandma’s house is where we find the remains of our parents’ childhood and the beginning of our lives.
Grandma’s house, on the inside, is the address of our deepest affection, where everything is allowed.
That luxury no longer belongs to me – unfortunately – it will live with me, only in memories.
Even so, if I could place an order now… any order of all orders in the world, I would order the same thing…
Can I sleep at Grandma’s tonight?”
