Caring about what people think


Hi Brooke – I spend my weekends running errands, and relaxing. Occasionally, I will do go to a concert or attend an event. I love my weekends but everytime people ask me what I did I feel like they think I’m boring and have no life.
I know that I shouldn’t care what people think about my life and it annoys me that I even do.
I’ve started a model but I get stuck with “should” thoughts.
UI
C:
T: I should be out doing things on the weekends
F: embarrassed
A: don’t connect w/ others, talk about my weekend as though I “didn’t do much/anything”
R: Think that I didn’t do anything fun

Suggestions on how to focus the model so that I change my thoughts about being embarrassed and annoyed that I am embarrassed? I want to get to a place where I don’t care what other people think and am fine with my choices – don’t need to defend them.

Thanks!
