    I'm not a toddler so don't speak to me

    I'm expected to be uninformed

    and immature. Everyone around me is being fed lies about religion and se* and love and they tell me IM the one in the wrong. Like ...was I supposed to not go learn about society and experience life? My bad. I got out of routine.

    My mother in law does

    that with everyone. She thinks she has all the answers based on age alone, but a large base of experience a wise person does not make. Hers is the most dysfunctional life. Even my husband looks at her sometimes like, What are you talking about?

    I never like to be talked down to.

    I'm not a child, and I'm most definitely not dense. Just because I'm quiet doesn't mean I don't understand, I'm just observing and taking everything in carefully.

    I often seem like I am stupid with the blank stares, the mixed up words when I speak, the way I contradict myself in the same sentence....man, I must seem mental....

    Ugh and it sucks because sometimes I read people wrong and freak out but realize they didn't mean anything by it and then I apologize a thousand times and they say "it's ok, you didn't know" and boom. Cycle
