    I Know People Do.

    I know people get the wrong impression of me because I've been told that they do. Two therapists & my vocational specialist have told me that when they first met me, they thought I was (in their words) "gruff," "aloof," "hard," "rude,"..... After they got to know me, they said...

    Impressions Can Be Misleading...

    Yes, that is a perfect imprint of my teeth in your neck, but honestly I do love you. *giggles* Seriously, people I don't try to impress, I guess I just leave marks on souls.

    In Fact, I'm Sure

    Most times, I know that people get a totally wrong impression of me( often, on my purpose). Lots of people think I'm quite standoffish if not arrogant, and I must admit I tend to give away an "ice queen" impression of myself. More simply, I'm quite a shy and reserved...

    I Am So Often Misunderstood Or People Underestimate Me

    I am a very kind, caring loving person. This is who I am, I have no motivate behind it. I treat everyone with respect, and I will do anything I can for someone, people often think mostly men, that I am easy, they think just because I am very kind and I have so much passion within...

    I'm Actually A Nice Person.

    When people first meet me they think that I don't like them and that I'm extremely rude. I just happen to be extremely sarcastic and I guess that comes off mean to some people. I'm not a bad person, I just use sarcasm because I truly don't know what else to say. I'm shy around...

    Loud and Annoying Or Quiet and Shy?

    It depends on the person that I'm meeting though. If I'm around someone that I'm intimidated by or don't like then I'll be quiet and won't say anything at all. I'd just stand in the background waiting to go home. Or if someone's there and I'm with a bunch of friends, then I might...

    I'm a Little Paranoid About It

    One of my best friends that I had when I was younger once told me "I didn't like you at first because I thought you were rich and snobby"   I was SHOCKED!  I'm not snobby... and unfortunately not rich either.  Ever since then I worry about how people...

    Sometimes I find myself thinking about how

    people are perceiving me. I don't think I make good first impressions. I do the wrong stuff all the time and I say the wrong things. I'm just not a very social person. it's not that I'm too antisocial though, I just prefer to be on my own. I can't understand the way I act...

    I Know They Do.

    I talk very strangely, and have never felt very comfortable with my speaking voice. As a singer, however, I feel as though I can express myself through words much easier. People always get the wrong impression, until I sing. SHAxO

    Half-assed Philosophy

    Maybe people get the right impression of me and I'm the one with the erroneous perception of myself ...How much does it matter what people think of us? Getting jobs, securing housing, if we want to adopt children ... sure, there are a plethora of situations that require us to...

    I Try to Always Be Nice And...

    I try to always be nice and courteous to everyone, and I will talk to anyone. Some people, guys mostly tend to take this as me being interested in them in a sexual way. I don't get this, because I immediately point out to everyone that I am a happily married woman. I guess some...

    But then again... Is it really a wrong

    impression if it is all they ever perceive of me? I can no longer tell if there even is a real me underneath it all. As if it is all surface, no substance. No one ever tried to find out, to dig just a little deeper. I can't promise hidden treasure. But if no one cares to find it...

    Funny Thing....

    Its true that I may have wondered this when I joined the group, but I no longer feel this way. I've had a lot of recent experiences that have made me decide that for the most part I don't care anymore what impression people get of me. Unless it has to do with my children or my...
