How much control do you have over the kinds of thoughts that others have about you? the answer is A LOT! Hopefully you like this answer. This means that you can:
1. Become more aware of how others DO think about you (or may be thinking about you)... ask a trusted friend to give you some honest feedback. In group therapy sessions group members are able to do this as a way to help one another increase self-awareness in a safe, supportive environment.
2. Figure out what you need to do to to increase the likelihood that others will think about you the way that you want them to think about you. In group therapy sessions group members take others' feedback, set behavioral goals, and get support as they practice new behaviors.
