You Cause My Opinion Of You

Patently untrue. I cause my opinion of you.

We're taught to take responsibility for other people's opinions of us. The prevalent notion is that "I wouldn't have this opinion of you if you weren't the way that you are. If you were different, then my opinion of you would be different. So, it's your fault that I think this way about you."

Even though there are limitless ways that the other person could view you, you're supposed to be the cause of that one specific choice that they make, as if there's no other option than the one that they chose.

The existence of free will means that you can't be the cause of another person's opinion of you because they could always change their opinion. Their options mean that their choice is caused by them, not you. You can let go of the burden of other people's perceptions. Their perceptions have nothing to do with you.

You're never the cause of another person's opinion of you.
