Whew. That's a mouthful.
But let's discuss what that means.
It means that I'm really good at knowing what most people want.
It means I'm good at generalizing and publicizing things for the masses because I know what most people think about.
I know how people work.
Now, obviously I'm not perfect at it because how could I possibly know what an entire population of people want slash think about slash need? But I have a really big weakness that helps me with this.
I care a lot about what people think.
This is more than just being a people-pleaser...I am genuinely terrified of what people think about me.
As I get older, it's easier for me to brush it off. (Like my crazy freshman roommate...) but it's a huge driving force in my life.
I often choose to go to parties because I don't want people to think I'm a party pooper.
I help people with their social media stuff because I want people to think I'm smart.
I read books because my teachers tell me to and my teachers are important people.
I agree with people because if it means I can keep in their good graces then I will.
This doesn't mean I'm fake. In fact, it means the opposite because I care a lot about what you think about me.
But at what point does it matter?
Does it matter what people think about your significant other?
Does it matter what people think about you moving to D.C.?
Does it matter what people think about you wearing overalls?
Does it REALLY matter?
What do you think?
