Problems cannot be solved using the same level of thinking that created them. We must try something different. Gently, we turn your challenges into opportunities for healing.

You wake up thinking about what other people think because you don't get over what other people think.
It is best to try not to think about what other people think of you. You are who you are, and don't let what other people think or say about you get to you. If you want to change, change because you want to, not because others want you to.
Self-image can be the first thing on someone's mind because at the moment it might seem like the most important thing when it is not. Being yourself is so much more likable, so much easier and less worrying or stressful. Wouldn't you agree?
Think about it when you wake up? Probably because that's what you have been thinking about before you go to bed.. usually the thoughts we have before we go to bed/fall asleep are the first thoughts that come through our heads in the morning when we wake up or also dreamed of..
becuase of low self esteem.....try focussing on what YOU like about yourself rather than what you dont.......
Simple, you have just woken up and the first thing you think about is not yourself, it is other people. Or you are paranoid. Either one of the two.
Because every day is a fresh start and interaction is something humans sometimes inherently crave
Because sometimes the words of others will stay with you if they meant something to you on a deeper level.
No no, this is wrong, people judge us from our outer image but they never look into our inner image, I want to tell you that you don't have to care what they think of you because even if a person is ugly we still don't know how they are inside so never care what they think, this is your life you were not born to be what people wanted you to be.
it's because you crave to be accepted, you want people to acknowledge you and you want them to accept you as one of the gang
Because sometimes people are so mean to us that we just find impossible to ignore them and their opinion. But we should not care about what people think about us, the way we dress, our tastes and everything else. We should just be ourselves, no matter what. We live to please ourselves, not others. We should wake up thinking about what makes us happy, not sad.
We live in a world where we are lead to believe that the only thing that matters is if someone likes us and fully accepts us. This becomes a daily routine and is hard to avoid.
It's normal to sometimes focus on other people's perception of you and it can be for many different reasons. Sometimes you may just be a very empathetic and caring person that often thinks a lot about how other people feel, therefore spend a lot of time wondering if this is reciprocated and what other people think about you. Or it could be because you're not happy with yourself and therefore are focusing on what other people think of you for validation that you're not getting from yourself. Either way, people's perception of you will always change. opinions are not consistent because people always change. listen to yourself more!
You wake up thinking what others think about you because you care about the relationships you have with others. Good or bad. You care and there is nothing wrong with that.
