Care to know


I've been often told that I should care less what people think of me.
And for the most part, I agree.

Recently though, I'm getting to realize that this attitude could be just as dangerous as falling slave to other people's expectations.
After all, what people think of me half-governs our interaction. Knowing it gives me the edge, ignoring it places me in peril.

So I shouldn't care what people think of me, but I should care to know.

The difference is subtle and vital.

i do agree to some extent with what you said.. but should we care to know what ALL people think or is it an exclusive privilege to CERTAIN people.. i mean at least the ones who care about you?

I like to know what other people think, out of curiosity mainly. Moreover, sometimes I make use of the comments/opinion. In other cases, the opinion about me tend to be quite unconstructive, but... I am always curious to know. :)
