    "you shouldn't care what people think"

    Ok....but....shouldn't you a little bit? because if you don't you're alienating yourself socially and while that's cool for some people. I've been extremely isolated in the past and it was awful.....At least so you know how you're perceived. I mean you can have some idea but sometimes your ideas are delusional and don't align with reality. Like i always assume people hate me but find out they don't. And it lets you know why people exclude you from things. I think knowing what people think is important. I mean not to to sucking up or changing who you are completely but rather to understand how you come across. Of course you shouldn't listen to everyone...but I like knowing how i come across. and once i know i can decide if i want to change it or leave it and the change or leave has to with is it negative or is it positive?

    I think you're right, and that the phrase should really only be used when you are either:

    A) Living your life in a way which isn't hurting or affecting anyone else negatively.
    B) They are 'thinking' about something which you cannot change.

    I don't think people mean, "Don't accept or listen to constructive criticism" whenever they use this phrase.

    Opinions are like assholes, 'cause everyone has one. Take input from people who have solid advice and your best interests in mind, and ignore the input from drama queens (regardless of gender).

    well, of course you want to be mindful of what impression you are leaving of yourself on others, but the sentiment of not giving a damn what others think i think is just more of a statement saying don't be afraid to do it your way or however you like; be your true self so to speak. also, like don't let convention dictate your life or stop you from doing something you want to. that's what i think.

    Fuck what people think... Insecure people take what so called confident people say in a serious way... Why? They're just trying to manipulate you. Use your intuition... ‘

    don't care what people think = how you get bullied by a socially successful person

    so i conclude people who follow this information are losers

    It means to become a walking contradiction. To not care what others think, but to still interact with them and have friendships. It really means don't care what others think if it is negative. The piece of advice only makes sense in a very restricted case which relates to the idea of not allowing yourself to be harmed by bullying.

    I don't mean listen to everyone you meet, but just those you trust or want to be friends with. and if the people you want to be friends with end up being dicks throw out their assessment and tell them to go fuck themselves

    I like to be aware of what other people think. We are influenced by the people we hang out with, so yes, it's important to listen to what people say, because what they say can cause mass shootings or bring peace to the world.

    I like global thinkers, and I like people who treat people ethically and kind. That doesn't mean they're less than. Being kind and mindful requires a degree of courage challenging the status quo of society, where it's needed, otherwise, the necessary change would not occur.

    We talk about being evolved, but then again, we have people spreading messages of hate so they can continue to oppress people who are already struggling, and I'm not cool with that!
