Does it matter to me if other people perceive the same things about me that I do?
Well, I feel it, but I won't say that it matters, if that makes sense. It's excruciating to feel misunderstood. But it's a matter of perspective -- other people can't see me the way I see myself because they don't have my context, they're too far from me, and I'm too close to myself. What's true is probably somewhere inbetween, but it's relative in any case.
I would like to think that it is "interesting" or that it amuses me. Truth: sometimes it hurts. Then again, sometimes I get more credit than I think I deserve.
ETA because we were posting at the same time:
How you present yourself definitely affects what people think of you -- the thing is, you don't know what that's going to be. You can aim for something generally pleasing and hope for the best. But somebody who would say that about you without knowing you at all, that's the kind of person I'd say can kiss your ass. It's frustrating because you know it's not true, but ... who is that person to you? No one. Right? So do the best you can but don't get wrapped up in it, that's the conclusion I've come to.
