    If only you knew you could tell me anything,

    and I wouldn't judge you. I would accept you for exactly who you are and not by how society stereotypes and define you. I would love you as a human being unconditionally. But I doubt that's what you see.

    I do wonder what it is people really see in me-

    both good and bad. The problem is, though, that even if I am complimented, I don't trust it. I've had people say "Oh, you're so pretty/smart/interesting/not annoying"... but their actions don't match their words. If I really am such a great person, why are you talking **** about...

    What do you see when you look at a woman?

    Her clothes... Well dressed so you assume she has class and money? Don't be so sure- that could be her only nice outfit. Dressed very prim & proper so she must be a prude... Could be a tiger behind closed doors. Dressed in something too tight, too revealing so she must be easy...

    Do people see the shell of a body

    that I'm in or do they see the self sufficient, reliable person I can be. I feel like everyone is always looking at my negative traits, not what I could potentially be. I wish that the world would change to see what everything could be not what it's not.

    As biologist, I always wondered what makes life.

    when I first learned about DNA and life in cells, I was shocked to see to that we are all just a bunch of chemicals interacting due to the pre defined laws of nature. But then, once we move past individual cells, it suddenly becomes so complex that its hard to wrap your head...

    I wonder if they see me

    as confident, kind and successful as I feel I am...it's too easy to become your own worst critic and lose confidence in yourself. I wonder if they think I'm weak for showing so much kindness and compassion, when really, I'm a fighter underneath. I wonder if they resent me for...

    A psychologist walked around a room

    while teaching stress management to the audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the 'half empty or half full' question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: 'how heavy is this glass of water?' Answers ranged from 8 to 20 oz. she...

    I've often wondered what it would be like to

    see the world, to see me through someone else's eyes. Can they see the scars that are hidden deep? Do they know why my body has been marked? Do they know why tears dried up many years ago? Do they know why I sometimes act inappropriately during certain situations? What do people...

    I get fidgety during meetings

    so I often curl my legs under me or I put my feet on the chair with my knees at my chin. I work with mostly males 20+ years older than me. I wonder if they look at me like I am some silly child who can't be professional.

    I wonder what people think

    when they look at me, I often get dirty looks from people, I get a sense that I'm being discriminated against. Sometimes people will just turn and look at me like I'm an alien when I'm out in public. Mostly men too, women don't seem to notice me at all.

    I don't remember the last time anyone told me

    I'm pretty. I don't remember the last time my family looked at me and didn't have a hint of disappointment or judgement in their faces. I don't remember the last time anyone said they love me and sound like they mean it. I literally feel like I lack a personality, like I'm just...

    that I ask someone, He's a knowable person, I ask him of something that I really didn't know in a friendly way and he answers me in more intimidating way, I felt it more business way. It Feels like he's telling me that he's the superior one. He lets me think that i'm too stupid...

    What do you see? Yeah there's the brown hair

    and eyes, but what else? You can't see what's inside, that's why it's so easy for others to judge, to assume, and to turn away. But we may have more in common than you'd ever imagined. So, take a closer look at someone next time you start to judge =]

    We develop language of this experience.

    In which we see things, our mind set, what we live by and how we communicate with our encounters, how we handle situations and our journey through life. Though it seems that we speak different languages, perspectives, of different magnitudes of vocabulary.. ( cliff hanger here...

    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

    floppy sun hat. The wind caught my hat. I reached with both hands to hold my hat. The wind abruptly blows my skirt straight up in the back. Good thing I had a pretty lace thong on. I think the wind must be a male. I didn't turn around to see who might have seen. I feared it...

    Everyone around me sees me

    as angry mean and evil but my attitude is a build up of growing up being identified as a dark skin girl with nappy hair I have been called ugly so many times I believe it I am ugly and evil it's like everyone one sees me as not good enough because I'm dark skin
