Most people’s opinion are as illogical as their brain is. Many people will decide they do not like you based off of nothing. Why would you care about the opinion of someone who isn’t making sense to you? Your validation of yourself should me more than Facebook likes and retweets. Instead focus on the opinion of those closest to you like your family and friends, make them happy and be kind.
