DefinitelyGettingOutOfThis Posted May 30, 2022 Share Posted May 30, 2022 I keep compulsively texting and chatting with some people even though I don't care about them. I don't even see myself talking to these people in a year from now, I just still talk to them because we are in the same school. But I can't stop talking to them and texting them. Every time we get in a conversation via messages I compulsively respond even though I should be doing other things. This is because I care about what they think of me. I fear that if they don't like me they will go and slander my reputation and tell the cops I did something I didn't do. (this fear is irrational). I have ADHD so this might be Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria. But I need to stop caring about such trivial things like what people think of me. I have a limited time on this life and I feel like I am wasting so much of my time by caring about what people think of me. Are there any good books, courses, or material on this topic?
