>>6058>>Why do you care what other people think?>Life must be very easy to live if you’re not insecure
I am actually very insecure what other people think about me. So much so it drives me kinda insane. I have a lot of issues to deal with but I always tell myself what Arline told Feynman: What do you care what other people think?
That quote came from Arline Feynman, Richard Feynman's wife who had TB at the time. They both a little shunned(?) from starting a relationship and getting married, all because she had TB. What would young Richie do with a girl like that? He couldn't even kiss her on the mouth!
I think Arline's parents even said "We understand if you'd rather not court our girl"! (or something along those lines.)
Now Dick didn't really care about any of that because he loved
her to bits, but he did care what other people thought of him. Sometimes Arline had to tell (or remind) him "What do you care what other people think?".
If only we could all be as free as Feynman.
I know it's hard, but once you let go for just a little bit? The freedom is breathtaking.
t. guy that's still learning to let go
