Why Do I Care?

Recently I had someone say something really mean to me. I'm not going to go into it because it's not important to this discussion. What bothers me is how much I let other people's opinions of me affect me. Why do I care so much about what others think of me?

This has been a struggle my whole life. Call it insecurity if you would like. Some would see it that way. I see it differently though. I see it as sin. Of course it's not ok for people to be mean and that too is sin. BUT, I cannot control other people. I can only control myself. And right now, all I see is selfishness.

Any advice on how to get past myself?
