[mind] Perception weather

People who 'care what others think' are well aware that it's a destructive thing to do. It's the stopping part that's the problem for most, I think.

A few things to realize if you suffer from such.

  • If "regard" for another person was a scalar [1-10], would you just take an average of the room and adjust your future self accordingly?
  • People change how the "feel" by enormous swings from one minute to the next.
  • Everyone is thinking about themselves.

Your wondering about this is like asking "I wonder what my weather is like on those planets." You will never influence it in a predictable way. It's entirely unanswerable. Who cares?
