    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 wonder what people really see

    when they look at me. Do they see my beautiful smile that holds all my insecurities. Maybe they see my fear held deep with in my eyes. Can they see I sometimes have pain and even the happiest cry's. I have such a bubble personality but that just covers up the truth, I'm so...

    Worlds Apart.

    Each of our visions are unique. As you read these words, you bring to them eyes that have seen so, so many things; you set these words amongst the many billions of phrases that swirl through your head; your past and your present are a lens that focus and then scatter these...

    Perspective is everything.

    Stay focused on your dream and it will come true. Stay focused on your doubt and you will be crushed by it. We truly are in control But one must take control. I know and understand this knowledge. So why cant I seem to stop doubting myself? The hesitation, the nervousness...

    My junior year I moved schools to

    where I didn't know anyone. Now, I never had much confidence in myself. Ever. About how I look or whatever my talents may be, nothing. Then I got my first boyfriend just a couple months later. And things are going great. I even started to get a little confidence about how I look...

    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 =]

    When someone walks into a room

    and everyone turns to see who it is I wonder what they all think. Is it just their presence that's lets everyone know that their here or was it the sound made when they entered? Was it how they looked on that particular day or was it how they didn't look that day? And when you...

    It's weird to think that the way you see

    yourself isn't how other people see you. While you're sitting there picking out all of your flaws, someone else is sitting somewhere admiring your beauty. ❤️

    I am curious as to how people see me.

    I'm a rather solitary person.

    I prefer to speak only when necessary or spoken to. Its just the way I've grown up. I feel like I have two lives. Who I really am, and the silent doll at school. I mean, I'm not bullied and I have never been, but I am definitely not happy mostly. I think much more than I speak...

    I just constantly wonder what people really see

    in me. I'm shy, at times very insecure. I don't take very many pics. Of myself because I'm not confident in my appearance, I can dress nice or dress down. I'm social awkward, Then other times I'm the life of the party...usually at home or my really small social circle. I joke...

    I wonder what people really see What I see.

    Are we seeing the same color? Same shape? Texture? formatting into object, meaning, definition... I believe not because we have define our own way in seeing thing in our experience.

    What do you see, when you look at me?

    Do you see me for who I am? Or do you see me through the tinted lenses of predetermined stereotypes? Do you see me as a unique individual, or do I seem like a cliche nobody? Who am I to you? Do I mean anything at all? Am I your friend? Or just a source of entertainment to you...

    I often wonder what people see

    when they look at me. I wonder if they see someone that's stupid and in need of guidance because EVERYONE seems to feel the need to give me step by step instructions on how to do everything.

    and open my heart is. Do they feel the love I give? How do they really see me? To me, it's all so much deeper than what's on the outside.

    The Poetry of Perception

    You may find that person in life that is an exact replica to you, your alternate thumb print so to speak.  But the truth is, we are all individuals and as such our perceptions vary. I know what I see when I look at that plain wall, in the mirror, at 'him', etc.  But...
