I've become much better about not worrying what others are thinking. I used to tiptoe (though it may not have seemed like it) to not hurt feelings and, in turn, not get my feelings hurt.
I'm a bigger girl now (in only some ways, thank goodness) and I realize that the stuff of life is sometimes hurting, sometimes getting hurt. I now seek to protect only the ones I care most about -- the ones who are worth the effort.
