Thursday we were asked how we feel about how others view us or look at us.  I responded that I always dress properly, put on makeup and do my hair.  I heard a comment today that really puts this in perspective.  "Why worry about others looking at you - they are probably not looking at you at all."  That made me stop and think.  How many people do we notice when we are out and about? Do you really look at others and judge them or do you just go about your business and not really notice others.  Something to think about. I'm not meaning this in a negative way, I just realized that we are all so busy with out lives and getting things done that we probably don't notice too many people.  I'm sure if you saw someone with blue hair you would notice but the average person - I don't think we really look at others very much.

That gives it all a whole new perspective. So instead of putting ourselves in their shoes, we are putting them in ours so to speak. Good concept Aurora, and I believe that you are right. There will always be some people who look around at others, but like you say, most of them have other things on their minds. So they aren't even paying attention, I know I don't.
