Worrying Too Much About Others

Completely agree! I find that how I perceive others is also how I perceive myself. When I'm judging other people, then I'm also worrying about who's judging me. On the other hand, when I'm in "Live and Let Live" mode, then I'm less concerned about what others think.

Thanks for the tips. I really should give meditation a try!

Also check out Byron Katie's The Work specifically for this. There's a thought pattern you can integrate that helps a lot with empathy and that "live and let live" mentality.
