Stuck-up Snobby *#@&*I'm not sure if I'm misunderstood, or misjudged. Maybe it doesn't make a difference, but this is my story:
I've been quiet and shy all of my life. Despite my shyness, I remained fairly active throughout my school years, including being a cheerleader. Crazy, I know, and to this day I ask myself why I did it. I hated it! Standing in front of the entire school, having them stare at me. Why did I put myself through that? Maybe that's where part of the confusion or misunderstanding came from, because despite being a cheerleader, and a girl most would consider to be pretty and popular, I was so shy and insecure. Walking down the hall at school I would have no idea what to say to others. I didn't want them looking at me so I didn't look at them. I got labled "stuck up". I'm sure there's a more current word in today's world. That word was so hurtful, and it was so untrue. My own sister used it against me.
Today I struggle with the same problem and hear words like anti-social, awkward, snobby, *****, etc. If only those people would take the time to get to know me they would see that I have a very soft heart, am forgiving, accepting, and non-judgmental.
