5 Reasons You Should Worry About What Your Friends Think About You
It has often been said that you should not pay heed to what people think or say about you, because that deters you from being who you really are. It is true because after all, you should not change yourself for somebody else’s sake as it would then be synonymous with compromise, which makes you unhappy. But sometimes, considering the people who are talking behind your back or thinking about you, you should pay some attention. It could be for your own good. What if the people in question are your friends? Do what they think and say about you also does not matter? To an extent, it actually does. Listed here are 5 reasons why you should worry about what your friends think about you.
1. They form your immediate social circle
Your friends form your immediate social circle, comprising people outside your family and relatives. In fact, they are the ones who are second closest to you after your parents and certain relatives. What they think about you does matter because you are part of the imaginary community called “friend zone” that they also belong to. If they think positive about you, you have nothing to worry about, but if they do not, you definitely want to know what is wrong.
2. They determine your position in the friend circle
Your friends’ opinions about you matter because they give you a position in the group depending upon what kind of a person you are. Whether you are the arguable one or the amicable one or the humorous one will determine how you are treated among your friends and what they think about you. It also defines your position and importance in the friend circle.
3. They talk about you behind your back
What your friends think about you matters and you should worry about them because they are the ones who admittedly talk about you when you are not around and behind your back. In fact, some friends will even go to the extent of telling you what they have been discussing about you when you were gone. But the crux is your friends will be discussing about what kind of a person you basically are and whether or not to reconsider any liaison with you.
