It's no fun always to be concerned about what other people think of you. I know. But when I was in the tenth grade I had an insight that shifted my concern for myself to concern for others and made my life much more enjoyable.
I was getting ready for school one morning when the thought came: "My classmates are probably much more occupied with concern about what other people think of them than they are about what they think of me. So, instead of worrying about whether they like me, why don't I treat them in a way that shows that I like them?" That day, instead of walking down the school hallways feeling like an unpopular misfit and waiting for others to show an interest in me, I took the initiative and greeted others in a caring way. It was a good feeling—an important turning point in my life and in my relationships with others.
