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.

Of course! Jive, please advise: is sarcasm immoral?

... No. It's hysterical. Lying is immoral.

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.

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 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.

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.

10/25/13 11:35 am

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.

JiveYoungKing The Banter Boy
10/25/13 11:38 am

I think I have an idea, but I kinda got lost... What's your "witness" insinuate?

HayleyS looking up.
10/25/13 11:42 am

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..

HayleyS looking up.
10/25/13 11:43 am

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

JiveYoungKing The Banter Boy
10/25/13 11:47 am

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..

10/25/13 11:49 am

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

JiveYoungKing The Banter Boy

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.
