Do other people's opinion on you effect how you live? Do you care about others' stances on morality in regards to your own life? Answer yes if you'd say so to either or both, no if that's your answer to both.
I love that everyone will know my answer to this. :D
Yes and yes?????
Of course! Jive, please advise: is sarcasm immoral?
... No. It's hysterical. Lying is immoral.
Are you sure? Oh my. I'm such an awful person! How many Hail Marys must I do in penance?
Better yet, 666.
I actually care quite a bit about what others think of me. Possibly too much. But I don't let how others view me dictate my beliefs, morals, or personal rules. I'm always curious how others see me. And I'm pretty sensitive, so sometimes it hurts...
...But the older I get, the less it hurts, and the better I am at telling myself that my own opinions of who I am are what matter most.
Damn straight twss. 1-1 btw... ;)
JYK, I saw that :) I was trying to find a poll of yours to comment on after Wednesday's game, but alas, I didn't have a lot of time that day ;) Pretty sure Cards are gonna win this in game 5 at home...no bigs though ;)
I agree about game 5... But that's where you lose me. I was looking around for you after game 1! Sh*t! This is me being diplomatic!
Ha! I knew you were looking for me...I was ready to face the music. The Cards were just awful that nite. Ugh. I stopped watching. Didn't watch all of game 2 either, but enough to know how it ended ;)
I follow my own rules, and the ones that would be to challenging not to follow.
I really couldn't care less what others think of me.
I care what others think of me to a point. I know that I can't please everyone but at the same time I want to at least please those that are close to me.
I do take the opinions of others into account. But if it's the right thing to do, I'll still do it regardless of their opinions.
Yes, but only certain people. Those being my family and close friends.
I am only responsible for what I think, say, do, believe. I have responsibility to *share* my faith w/others. I have *no* responsibility to change anyone's mind, about anything.
Life is easier if one takes care of their own life rather than attempting to control others. I invite others to consider my views. Not responsible for outcome if I demonstrate compassion & respect doing so. Their choice = their consequences.
Some family and a few friend may have some impact. Out side of that it would be almost none
Yep. And I'm hoping I learn to get over it. I was always told that there are some things you shouldn't do and some places you shouldn't go, not because it was inherently wrong, but because it could hurt your "witness" as a Christian.
I think I have an idea, but I kinda got lost... What's your "witness" insinuate?
Whether or not people will take you and your faith seriously.
The things I can think of that I have been told not to do because it might make people think differently of me and thus making me lose any influence is- cussing, drinking, going to clubs..
Because Christians are supposed to be "different". If you are acting like everyone else, how are you supposed to be a representative of Christ?
I have a family who won't buy wine to *cook with* because she doesn't want anyone to see her buying wine.
Things like that I never understood about religion... Maybe because I wasn't brought up in that environment. Personally, I don't see why people can't live the life they want to, have the kind of fun they want to, and have their religious credibility
challenged or whatever. One, I don't see why others' belief in how faithful to your religion matters. And two, didn't god create everyone the way they are? To enjoy doing whatever it is they enjoy? That element always confused me.
They think that people are going to throw things back in their face if they try to share their faith.
The teachers at my high school had to sign a contract that they won't drink in public.
But people will find some way to criticize your decisions..
I've realized that I can't spend all of my time worrying that others will find fault in my decisions because regardless of what I do, someone probably will disapprove. That's life.
I'm proud of you fam :)
I think that's a great lesson everyone should learn. Besides, you awesome as hell. And you run the hood, so get a goon after them lmaoo I'ma be in Florida soon enough so I'll pass by AL and dropkick a hatin nigga!
And then promptly leave, but that's not the point!
I care *way* too much about what others think.
That kinda saddens me. You shouldn't. There's a good balance for some of taking others' opinion into account and ignoring some... As long as you don't stress yourself out over others' opinions.
ha, I do all the time. I do think it makes me a better teacher, though, so there's that.
Haha, ever the optimist I guess :P
Sure, in a professional or intellectual context it's greatly beneficial to listen to others. But in a personal context, you shouldn't. You're mad smart, cute, and sweet. You come off as a good person.
You shouldn't sweat them haters Emma! Haha.
aw, thanks, Jive ❤️

I am really not concerned with what others think of me. Hate me for who I am? So be it. Like me for who I am? Awesome! Love me for who I am? Even better.
I know I'm not perfect, or anywhere near that. I'm always trying to improve myself, but for me.
Preach to em Luc!!
It's not that I don't take others' opinions into account. I always do, but I will not allow them to go against what is proven to be right. Essentially - I'm not going to ignore good advice when it contradicts my own, but makes more sense to follow.
Yeah, I feel you. I try and do the same, I just am stubborn and a bit stuck in my ways at times... I've been called an old man since early childhood :P
A solid no. My personal code is the only one that matters, and the only one I follow.
No and no.
Yeah, my jaw hit the floor reading that haha
My apologies. Does your mouth open that wide or did you just trip?
It's not supposed to... I know that for sure. And I don't have medical insurance... Owait, that doesn't matter!
My stance on morality does not change from any outward influence. There ARE a very select few whose opinion I trust enough to let it influence me, my mentors, the people with which I would trust my life.
Even then it rarely affects my choices, and if it does it is after much intense thought on my part.
That's a great way to live imo
Well thank you jive. :))
I voted yes but I live in a way that I don't let what others say dictate everything I do but I take it into consideration.
That's a good balance. I listen to their opinion and all, I just don't care haha
Ha there's nothing wrong with that either
I voted no. I personally don't need or even want anybody's approval. And I never understood people who do in that regard... I feel that's a scary way to live.
I said no - but took me a minute to get your meaning. But no for sure. Lol.
