Have you ever tried hard to stop caring what other people think about you?
Hoped that doing so would free you from social pain and self-doubt once-and-for-all?
Trying to be your own island of self-support sounds like a terrific idea, but if you’ve tried (and failed), you’re in the company of many other brave but lonely souls.
First of all, if you’ve tried this advice in the past and only ended up feeling crappier than ever, please know right now that you were unintentionally led astray, and it’s not your fault that you didn’t “succeed”.
You see, the way this common advice is delivered is all wrong, and intriguing research now reveals why you (and many others who’ve also attempted to go down this road) have actually ended up feeling much worse than before.
But the good news is that now that we know what doesn’t work, it’s easy to take the correct actions, instead.
Keep reading and I’ll not only show you how and why this common advice falls apart, I’ll also show you how to stop feeling painfully raw and vulnerable in social situations once-and-for-all.
(Although, it won’t be in the way you suspect – toughening up, not caring, and detaching are not the answers).
