I 'm Wondering How Other People See Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,656 People

    I have had my fair share of fake

    and toxic people in my life who were sweet to me in person and I later learn that I'm a wicked *****. Really? I can't honestly think of anything vindictive I have ever done to these individuals. Of course, upon learning this information I've eventually removed them from my life...

    Yeah. How do people see me?

    There is a computer screen in the way! What is this, x-ray eyes? Anyway, sarcasm finished. How do people see me? I think I'm seen in two completely different ways online and offline. Probably because of my appearance, which people online don't know. Ugh, ugliness. Oh well. At...

    Tell Me What You See............when You Look At Me

    I don't really know what I see when I look in the mirror. I wish I could put myself in other people's shoes and look at myself from their perspective. What do they see???? Do they think I'm High maintenance??? Do they think I'm ugly?? Can they tell I'm happy...

    I have no idea about that

    but I sometimes wonder what people think about me but again I don't very much care about it as long as they don't bother me I am cool with it.

    I love clouds that sleep behind mountains

    and making up sad stories for people in beautiful houses, I love long hair curling around fingers, I love sitting on the sand feet in water, swimming through obstacles for pink ribbons, I love walking on decks with loud shoes and in rooms that echo, I love remembering dreams...

    I wonder how people on this site see me. This is setting myself up for opinions but, if you like, leave your opinion here.

    It's not a secret that a lot of us think about

    how other people see ourselves. I've been wondering about that for a long time. And for half of my teenage years, I've been staying neutral for the sake of it. Now that I've decided that neutral is not me, I wonder how they see me now that I've started trusting them to see my...

    What Do You Call It?

    OK, so what do you call this?  I want to know because it happens to me all the time.I was at the beer store and I asked if they had any doppelbocks.  This clueless guy who is probably 17 and works in the wine section pointed to this big open door that said "employees only...

    I Worry Too Much About What Others Think

    I am trying to not worry so much about how others see me. It takes away from my natural spontaneity and I know I have missed out on a lot of things because i have been afraid of what people might think. Lately, with a lot of help from some friends on EP I am breaking this bad...

    Every day, every second someone looks at me.

    This intrigues me. I sometimes ask questions in my head like why are you looking so much at me, why do you try to hide your stare, what are those guys talking and laughing when I'm near. I'm always wondering how I'm perceived by others.

    ive always wondered how every one sees me.

    I have so many different sides of me I often wonder if they see me as acting fake. im not I just act different depending on how I feel about some one. I wonder a lot about how people view me. I know how I see myself but how do you ever really know how some one sees you?

    I know what I see, but I've always wondered how

    others perceive me. Do I look like the same person, that I see in the mirror, to them? Am I as funny as I think I am? What I would give to be someone else for a day, just so I can see myself for the first time.

    I don't much give a click how most people see me. I know who I am (mostly...I'm still working on it...but that's part of life). My friends, my real, true, best friends, are probably the ones who know me the best because I share how I feel and who I am. Even more so these days...

    because people say the oddest things to me, and make the weirdest faces. I am not sure if it's jealousy or hating that I'm there or what or gas? either way I guess I am leaving an impression :Pe

    I often wonder this, and I know I shouldn't care....but I can't help but wonder how I am perceived. To strangers on the streets, to people I just meet. Sometimes I can be my own worse critic so I wish I knew how I really come off. What impression do I make? If only I could know...

    I've always worried about this.

    It's a constant thing for me to wonder what another person thinks how I look, how I carry myself, or how intelligent they think I am. I shouldn't be that way. I know it's ridiculous.

    Human Condition

    I think that it is pretty normal to wonder how others see you... I think the only time it really becomes a problem is when you are obsessed with how you appear to others. I have been a total outcast my whole life and I get stared at where ever I go. My brother told me that it was...
