Question(s)
These are just random questions and have nothing to do with anything. They have nothing to do with each other for that matter.

Think of someone you don't like, hate, don't respect; Someone you would never or no longer spend your free time with (by choice not schedule or geography conflicts).

Why?


Do you act differently ever? Due to nervousness, first impressions whatever? If so, why?
If the answer is "because of what people think", why do you care what anyone thinks about you?

If you have one thing in your life you believe you know VERY well, a lesson life has taught you, what is it?


Thank you :)~

That'd be the director for As You Like It.

Why?
Cause she's a needy flake who blames all her problems on not loving Jesus enough!

I act differently when I'm not alone, because I'm not as happy as I let on...nobody likes a whiner though!

I'm an actor. I entertain. It's the one thing I do well, of course I care :)

I teach myself, but I don't learn! :)

i just have one tihng to say, and i'm gonna do my very best to do it tactfully.

it is important what people think of you. well, not WHAT they think, but why they think it. That is very important. And we can't really do a whole lot of good in this world, if everyone you as a liar, a cheat, an asshole, etc.

Some people don't care what others think.
Some people use that as a cover, cause they just don't care about others.

I do care what others think. Not to the point of change, just to the point of information.

Its also very hard not to make others feel condescended upon, when one does not care so much. They often wonder where everyone went in their lives. They often get lonely, and start walking backwards. I only know this cause I've been there. I've been where someone would say something to me, trying to help me out a little, and I'd think it was about them, or someone else. I thought I was above all that.

I am not.
We are not.

LOOONG and probably a lil babble

This is very true.

I think maybe I should clarify, I mean caring what people think in the sense of doing things because we are worried of perception. On the other hand, if we lead our lives in a way that is true to ourselves, unless we are a liar or cheat, we will not be percieved as one.

I don't want to be percieved as a liar, but there is nothing I can do if someone percieves me this way unless I am one or have done something to cause this.

Let me be a little more clear (Smiles to self realizing she often comes out confusing people more). Let's say in the culture my friend Harnet grew up in, if someone wears a pink bow tie OR says the phrase "silly as a chicken on a cow" (Just making these up) they are a liar. Unless I know this before hand, I may one day be percieved as a liar by this person, and by none of my own fault. Of course if I know this, I will make an effort not to wear the bow tie or say that phrase around that particular friend.


I guess, my simple response, my only point was wondering why people fear how they are percieved when often there is nothing you can do to control it. People will always have opinions, be they valid or thought up, you rarely have control over them so why live your life in fear?

People worry so much about how they are percieved, they try to impress people and be someone they're not in order to be liked. ALSO people worry too much about being mis-percieved (yep making up words) that they either never feel comfortable because they are WAAAY overanalyzing things, or are sooo worried they despise meeting new people, when in reality everyone

AAAAHHHH, trying to say so much. Basically because of worry, more misconceptions arise than do truths. Did that make sense?

One thing I've noticed (and I may be wrong) those who are most worried are often more judgemental of others because of aforewaid statement.

I'm making generalizations just for the sake of discussion and from what I've seen in many people and heard from many people.

I still haven't made my point, but I have a feeling you understand what I am getting at.

And I always need people. I value you, my friends, and anyone who has any sort of experience (aka people), I can learn something from everyone.

Back to work now (for me)!!!!

Re: LOOONG and probably a lil babble

what you say makes sense.
i fully agree with not living in fear. but this particular answer, to that particular situation is OUR answer. you can't really say whether the people who do live in fear would be better off if they didn't or not. if you were them, then yeah, but we aren't anyone else.

so many live in fear of what people think, yes. and yes, this is not something that i will do. but that doesn't make one better of worse. it just means that the people are different.

i think i see what your point is, and its a valid one, to you. my point is, is that living in that fear, might be a rediculous amount better than being themselves.

we can't really say. the point of this whole schpeil was to convey that. and to mention, to watch out for making people who chose things you do not, not AHHHHH. hold on, let me try that again:)

this is my whole point:
People make choices you think are wrong for you life. YOu may be right. What you (everyone, but i'm saying this to you) need to be aware of, is not coming off as condescending to those who choose what you feel isn't right for you.

Its funny, cause we're talking about not caring what others think, and i'm talking about not coming off as a condescending prick. I brought up that point, cause you can't do much good in the world, if you are on a high horse, or people think you are.

i'm blabbing now. but i also feel you prolly get my point:)

good luck with your work:)

Ill answer the first question. (Maybe Ill get to the other two when I have more time to think).

"Think of someone you don't like, hate, don't respect; Someone you would never or no
longer spend your free time with (by choice not schedule or geography conflicts).
Why?"

There is basically one main reason why I will not like someone and stop spending time with that person. That is if he or she is disrespectful towards me or anyone else. I have only been truly angry twice in my live and both of these times were a result of someone being disrespectful towards me. I just cant respect someone who does not respect others.
