    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 I wonder if I will ever be okay.

    I wonder if I will ever be able to truly love myself. I wonder if I can reach my dreams or always down myself. I wonder a lot.

    I wish I could see myself through someone

    else's eyes, not just see myself in the mirror, but feel what they feel when they look at me...I know that seems odd

    I'm a very strong and confident person,

    so I honestly don't care about anyone's negative opinions of me. I'm not perfect by any means, but I'm a good person and I do my best, and that's good enough. I love who I am, and I love who I hope to be even more. Sometimes I wonder what other people see though. I wonder what...

    I would really love to meet myself from another

    person's point of view just to see if people find it as awesome to meet me as I find it to meet them.

    Do you find me attractive?

    Tell me why/why not. I'm only asking out of curiosity.

    I honestly wonder all the time what people

    really see in me or how I look to others. Am I pretty? Nerdy, like able? Annoying? Too serious? Too sarcastic? I feel I am perceived differently by different kinds of people, and in a way this is scary. I accept myself and feel I am me and I love myself (not in a self-centered...

    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 =]

    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...

    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...

    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

      In my younger years, which is not that long ago for me, I first wondered if people saw different colours…because if you see red as I see green how am I to know the difference, because we both call the different colours the same thing. Now days I think science has...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Your perfect life lead you to believe the

    nieave conception that you should be a one dimensional person. Sheltered. My broken life and wisdom I gained from it saved you, your stability and love gave me something to hold on to. The Anwser is, true love does exist. Maybe it just isn't in the way you picture it.

    I do wonder what people think of me,

    or whether they understand something I say or do the way I meant it. But I also take this literally. Like, if I'm looking at a green chair, and you agree that it's green, there's no way to know that the color we see is really the same. It's a deep existential mystery :)

    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 don't understand why... I'm really a stand offish kinda person until I get to know somebody is trustworthy and they are worthy enough to be called my friend. I don't trust easy, people have let me down pretty much most of my life... Including close family members... I have...
