    I often wonder what kind of impression I make.

    What people think just by looking at me. Is it obvious that I'm mute? Or that I dance? Or do they only see a ordinary teenage girl?

    I often imagine what people think

    when they look at me. If they're my friends I'll ask and usually I'll be surprised by the response. Sometimes they think I'm being one way when I thought I was acting another and I find that contrast between my attempted objectivity and other's perception

    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    Just because I drive a 911,

    and wear a Rolex doesn't mean I'm a pompous *******....I'm 100% the opposite!! I enjoy nice things (and love to share) I came from almost nothing, and busted my *** for what I have! Finally enjoying life at 40!!

    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.

    Ha! What a concept. I love it.

    I used to be really afraid of what people thought of me. Then I realized two important things. The first- it's not as important what others think of me as what I think of myself- so I'd better take responsibility for myself and be who I want to be! The second- I am not...

    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.

    and wondered how they see you or how the world may think of you or in general how you reflect on others. The world sees you in a lot of ways but one this for sure is that you stay who you truly are and no one else.

    Not in a good way either, almost like they have to tolerate me. I might just be a little paranoid, but I still feel like I'm the odd one out. Like I don't fit in. Like I can't fit in. Like I'm some stranger just watching people have a conversation.
