I Don't Like People to Think I'm Stupid

    Oh Dare Anyone Think That They Have the Right???!?!?!?!?!?

    If someone insinuates that I am stupid or even acts like they are going to imply it I get furious! I can be wrong but that doesn't mean that I am stupid. Being made to feel stupid or being humiliated are two of my least favorite things....

    And yep, I've been guilty of having thought

    that of others. The feeling that you are talking about something that the other person does not seem to be getting..............it does not make them stupid. It makes them not knowledgeable of what you refer to. It makes them possibly respond in a way you have no understanding...

    And It Happens A Lot

    I'm not good with numbers, so shopping can be really hard for me.  Also, when I get overwhelmed, I scramble my words. Those two things together can lead to a very negative impression of me.  I can see the judgement in their eyes, hear it in their voices.  I'm judged as stupid...

    Get Over It

    While I do do daft things often, I don't appreciate being called stupid, surprisingly I was top in most of my classes. And I hate saying that, but, I'm sometimes forced to say it to shut up people who like nothing better than to lower your self esteem. Trust me, mine's hard to...

    My Dad Subtly Acts Like I'm Stupid

    So I'm going into the 9th grade, and for the last 2 years I've been in this special gifted class. It basically means that I learn things faster than other kids, and our class can do things more independently. Well my dad exaggerates this so much. He'll brag to anyone that listens...

    Stupid?

     Well. You know what? I don't care. I know that I have a good brain. I can't speak well but I do understand what I read. So there.

    Don't Care!

    Well, many people may think I am stupid.  Some treated me as I am stupid.  In all, I know I am far from being stupid.  I'm not saying; I don't have my blonde moments cause I get them too.  ;)(No offense about the blonde, it is just a saying.  I was a blonde also).People can...

    Me

    I am not stupid. I am not very smart either. But I do know a lot of things and am in a constant quest of defining myself. It's just that in real life I don't think much before I talk... because I'm afraid the moment will be gone by the time I figured what I have to say...

    But How Do I Tell Them I'm Neither Stupid Nor Smart?

    There are people in my life that I love dearly who think I don't know anything that isn't written out and at least six inches in front of my face. If I venture an opinion that runs contrary to theirs, they start World War Three. Especially if its something I want and they don't...

    People Don't Know What They Don't Know.

    I often have ideas that people do not understand. The problem is generally their own ignorance. It is hard to calibrate ideas for stupid people. I am actually brilliant. I don't see why people have to be so closed minded and small. One example just the other day I told someone...

    I Can't Stand It

    Im not going to sit here and say I'm a genius, because I am clearly not, however that doesn't mean I'm not clever. I could read novels quite easily by age 7 and I always got good marks in school without having to study. When I want to learn something new I can usually pick it up...

    Being Fat, Female, And Happy Does Not Make Me Stupid

    I am a very exuberant person. I get excited about things. I'm generally happy and full of smiles. But the quickest way to ruin my mood is to assume that being happy or silly is equivalent to being stupid. I refuse to prove to people who already think I'm stupid that I'm smart...
