Whenever I have a tinge of thought stating what would people say, I bring myself down to the basic fundamental thought:
“Log kya sochenge?”
Agar yeh bhi tum sochne lago ge
To log kya sochoge?
It turns out, what people think is their responsibility to think. When we think of what they are thinking, we are letting go of our responsibility to think for ourselves, and take on the unsolicited responsibility of others. Not the best thing for anyone :)
