I would like to say that I never have been affected by people's opinions of me. Unfortunately, it's not so, but you keep learning everyday that the way forward and to significant progress is to follow what you believe irrespective of what other's think. It leaves you a much better chance of recognising the truth when you see it.

I'm afraid to tell my opinions to others especially if it is negative because they might think that I am a judgmental person. The other one is I don't want to suggest anything because I felt many times that they don't consider my opinions/suggestions so I'd rather keep my mouth closed.

People have always affected my actions and opinions. Most of the people that affect me are those I would have them out of my life though some I intentionally let to play a vital part in my life. I try not to let it affect me negatively.

when I was in high school, I used to think about people's opinion but later I realized it does not matter. Whether I am right or wrong people won't be happy. From then on...I have never bothered about people and society.

Most definitely. I've changed my way of thinking because I was afraid of the repurcussions of having a difference of opinion. I was always compared as a child and I think I've sort of developed a complex where I don't care for fitting in anymore, I just want to be invisible. My opinions are my own and it's what separates me from the next person so I no longer change it to please others. I'm now the most stubborn person alive only Jesus can get me to do something I said I wouldn't do.

I was afraid of people's opinions as a child but I am trying to overcome it now.

A lot of those seem to be back in high school.
Trusting yourself and having confidence in your own decisions is part of growing up I think.
