“The older you get, the more you understand how your conscience works. The biggest and only critic lives in your perception of people's perception of you rather than people's perception of you.” - Criss Jami

My conscience is internal, not external. My conscience isn’t influenced by how I think other people perceive me.

The only perception of me that matters in the least is my own. The perceptions (and opinions) of me by others are completely irrelevant, and easily disregarded.

I remember hearing a variation of that in church a long time ago. It was related to self-esteem: "What's important isn't what you think of me, or what I think of me. It's what I think you think of me." For me, there's a lot of truth there.

I have found that with age, I care much less about others’ opinions of me and more about my opinion of myself.
