Worry about being judged


I live in a small house in a very densely populated area. My house is overlooked by several other properties. I always feel as though people are watching me when I leave the house, wash the car, tidy the front garden, go for a walk.

 

I worry they're judging what I'm wearing, or my hair, or why I don't go out much. I tend to close the curtains early at night because I like privacy, and then I worry they're judging why I spend so much time with the curtains closed.

 

All this even though most of my neighbours are lovely people and when we talk I don't get a sense of them being critical of me or others or anything.

 

If I'm out and about I'll worry about things like having to stop and re-tie a shoelace, or if I'm looking too sad and depressed, or if someone sees me getting lost and looking confused in an area I don't know.

 

I realise that the judgements are purely in my own head. I know they're my own self criticisms that I'm putting into other people's heads. I don't think I even care what other people think of me.

Your post was taken as it was intended Mrs Snoopy. Thank you.

Karol: guy. I know we're all anonymous on the internet but it's still useful to put a gender to a name. I'll try and add my real first name as a signature.
