An often-asked question is: What’s wrong with wanting others to like me? The answer is: Nothing. However, you must not let your happiness and self-worth be based on whether others like you or not. How do you stop worrying about what others think about you? Here are a few tips:

- External validation will only get in your way. Everyone has different reactions to you based on their life experience, not on who you are.
