    I Generally Expect Not to Be Liked

    I think I started to expect being disliked because at a young age; I worked primarily with men.  Being the token female was common in the late 70's and 80's.  So many of us were doing what was formally considered men's career fields.  I learned to be approachable...

    Thank God

    As the people I don't like, tend to not like me either. If I was liked by everyone, I wouldn't be standing up for my principles and beliefs as I should be, I would be running with the popular tide.  I make my opinions known, I can be a snob when it comes...

    and I'm okay with that.

    You're allowed to like someone, and you're allowed to not like someone. But, just because you don't like someone, doesn't mean you should mistreat them and disrespect them, for no reason. Just stay away from the people you don't like. :)

    Life

    I'm slightly unusual. That's enough for people, many of them, to treat me like a suspect. In my own eyes I am as normal as can be but who is not in his proper eyes? So, what is unusual about me and why? I'll give it a try but I do not know if I will succeed. My curriculum is...

    Fair Enough

    I don't expect everyone to like me, as I never did anything for everyone to like me!

    Most people tend to not like me

    because I'm honest. I don't like to lie or hide things from people so I just say whatever comes to mind. People mistake that for me being rude or harsh. I don't mean for it to come across that way.

    After so many years, I am coming to this

    realization. As much as I would love to be accepted and loved by every person on this earth, it just isn't going to happen. I need to learn to like myself as I am, change what needs to be changed, and accept what I can't change. It's a difficult thing to learn, especially if...

    ...and Don't Care!

    I am me and that is all I care to be.  If a person likes me for that then it is wonderful, but if not that is okay too.

    I have always felt a little left out.

    I'm pretty sure it's because I don't fake myself. I am the exact same to anybody no matter who else is around me. I find the group who likes me for who I am, not the group who likes what I could be.

    I Know That Not Everyone Is Goign to Like Me.

    Im sure my personality clashes with alot of others and im ok with that. What im not ok with is when a person goes out of their way to show you that they dont like you. Its rude and its childish. Be mature and get over it. I have my quirks and Im sure you have yours end of story.

    To Be Honest

    I am sometimes surprised one person does. Of Course I will have a guarantee that two people will like me for at least 10 more years but then my kids will be teenagers and I will be hard pressed to find anyone ..........well, I guess I'll have to make more kids

    Don't like me? Don't talk about me.

    Proclaiming how much of a ***** I am will not change me, and it only proves you're thinking of me.
