    about how people perceive you? From a personal perspective I think I care too much about how people think of me. For instance, I would never go to school in a banana outfit, despite the fact that I've always dreamed of doing this. How does one not give a damn?

    It depends on my mood and what type of people I am around.
    If I am near a bunch of *****y snobs that spread rumours then i would slightly care about how people percieve me. If i was near easy going people I would dress in banana suit lol

    Unfortunately yes. Deep down, everybody does, no matter how much they deny it.

    I'm sure there are people who don't, and these fortunate ones should share their secrets.

    I disagree. I think it's just a facade that they claim they don't care what people think as a sort of protective barrier; because they know that they're just as vulnerable as everybody else - and they don't like it.

    Yes...On a gap year and... When I'm walking back from the town centre by myself after I finish work and I'm surrounded by kids coming back from school in groups and they're wearing nice clothes and looking pretty. I always feel a bit embarrassed by myself. I always think if I actually look like a self-concious person when I'm feeling it... Does anyone else wonder the same thing?

    I sort of sort out these problems by thinking "I'm better than them because..." e.g. I'm smarter, I'm older etc... gives me a self confidence booster most of the time... Recently I've become a bit more care free... but it's after work I feel like this. At school I could've walked in like a banana and not cared had I not risked getting suspended for the rest of the day.

    Yeah, I would agree with what some people have said - everyone cares to a greater or lesser extent.

    I'd also agree that it's worst in your teenage years, but then you start to care a bit less as you get older.
