I 'm Wondering How Other People See Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,787 People

    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 Don't Really Care

    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...

    It's not that I have low self esteem

    or anything but it surprises me when someone calls me beautiful. I wish I could see myself thru their mind so I can see what's so beautiful

    How come society makes us feel bad

    for thinking out the box when all the time it's made up to control us. Come play at secreterotica . com it's sexy, fun the groups and library are wicked and no BS censorship either.

    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...

    Whenever I am bored I always wonder how people

    see me. Do I seem like a friendly and open individual? Reserved? Do I look pleasant to the eyes? I am not a self-conscious girl, oh no. I really like who I am but the question of how I am viewed to others still makes me curious.

    based on the other day,

    I discovered two options about how people see me. Either they see me as someone to lie to about other peoples' opinions so they can call me things to my face, or they remember a guy who graduated their high school a few years ago as those things. Either way, people need to get...

    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!!

    Frankly, it shouldn't matter,

    but somehow, how others see me is such a constant, gnawing concern for me that at times, I find myself altering my very being just to give them what they want. Or what I think they want. It's ******* ridiculous and cowardly and unnatural, and I don't think I can stop.

    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...

    Last week I had to go to my local home

    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'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.

    I am now starting to wonder

    if I am totally repulsive, or if it's just the way I come across. Maybe I make myself unapproachable. I'm not out right mean or anything like that, just have developed shyness after everything I've been through. Then again...maybe I am just that ugly.
