    I could look at myself 10 times a day in a

    mirror and never see the same image twice, so it makes me wonder what others really see. do they see the rose the same way as me, does the sun shine in the same light as i see it, do the trees sway in the wind for them the way i see it, and do they derive the same enjoyment from...

    What Do People See?

    I've always wondered what people see when they look at me. I've always seen myself for me. But do others see me as shy? Weird? Am I someone that's anti social? I want to know, but I don't want to see what others say because I know they won't tell me the truth to my face
