7 tips to help you be your own person
I’ve met people who don’t care at all what others think. These may be lovely people in some ways, but they tend to do to social situations what, say, an unseasonable heat wave might do to the Winter Olympics. Still, in some ways you can envy them. Never seeming to care or even consider what others think of them – oh the freedom! But really we want balance. To be ’emotionally intelligent’, we need to have some awareness and consideration of what others may be thinking of us whilst not caring so much that it prevents us being effective and original human beings.
