How many times has somebody actually told you what they think of you? I mean since high school.
Can you think of any examples?
You see, often our subconscious mind is making it all up, it's imagining what other people think, it's imagining how other people feel & it's very rarely positive!
Our negative imaginings of what other people think about us is actually only a reflection of what we think of ourselves. Our own negative self-judgements are voiced in our imagination by someone else's voice coming out of someone else's face. Even when you are the only person in the room.
When we sit in meditation we can see through these illusions, delusions & imaginings, we can see them for what they really are: they aren't real. Then we open the door to what is real & that's where the real fun begins!
