Have you ever wondered what other people think of you?
How many times have you done or not done something after concluding what other people would think or say about you if you did it? How many times have you done it first and afterwards asked those people what they think of you, requested feedback from them?
If you really want to know what someone thinks of you, ask. Otherwise it is all assumption, and we all know the impact of incorrect assumptions…
I wonder what would need to happen for you to stop wasting time and energy on assumptions and either ask, or let it go?
