    Left Hand Corner Of A Cottage

    People have some idea about me, they know a few things, maybe rather odd and unusual things but like the broader picture of a puzzle, just fitting a few pieces together in the bottom left hand corner of "country cottage" doesn't make me a hedge. I'm a hedge, the garden, the...

    I Am Not Who I Appear To Be.

    I show a different person then who I am, to the world. They make all kinds of assumptions of who I am and how I think, and don't even bother to think that there might be more to me then they see.

    "There will always be an a*s*s* in an assumption". She was a self made woman that was an orphan during the Great Depression. She worked as much as she could. Taught herself how to sew the most beautiful clothes.  Put herself through college, met my Dad who only had a 4th grade...

    I think we all have insecurities and that's why we tend to make these assumptions as a defense mechanism.

    based On Handwriting Of All Things!!!

    I'll grant you, my handwriting could use a lot of improvement.  It looks like it came from the pencil of a 3rd grader.  Seeing as how I'm a grown woman, assumptions are made.  People seem to equate childish handwriting with a childish mind or a lack of intelligence. Neither of...

    I've been called both.  Neither is true, but people make these assumptions, and I resent it.I'm not a size six.  Or eight.  I've been rejected by men several times because my weight isn't ideal.  One episode in particular sticks with me.  A man said to me "I can't date you...

    thoroughly. Even these people sometimes don't know every single part of my personality or who I am, so when someone who I barely know at all pretends they know some aspects of me I find it infuriating. It's as if they have an image of me in their head that they want to mold me...

    You Know What They Say About Assumptions....

    There are quite a few assumptions lurking about that I'm never told of until I get to know someone better. The first being that they thought I didn't like them when we first met. I'm a pretty standoffish person and it takes me a little while to warm up to people. You wouldn't...
