We All Care. Day 146.

“I don’t care what people think.”

It’s an untrue statement we have all said, thought, and heard. It’s a wonderfully protective social tool we use to move on from an awkward situation or declaration of an unpopular belief about something, but if you rub Secret on your pits, wear Covergirl mascara, or refrain from picking your nose in public, you care.

It’s natural to want to fit in. People are pack animals, and we don’t want to be put out into the cold. We will howl our lone wolf sound throughout social media, hoping to find another pack to insert ourselves into.

I’m guilty of it, too. When I’m feeling particularly lonely or insecure, I try to tell myself I don’t need anyone, then I put on light pink lip gloss and go about my day.

Today, I declare that I do, in fact, care what people think.
