If I'm not understood, it's because I don't make myself understood. It takes a while to get to know me. I don't always make the best first impression, but if you don't like me after knowing me a few months, you are crazy
Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
Some people assume if you don't overstate something with redundancy, and repeat it several times (teehee), you don't actually mean it. I'm rather a bit decent at interpreting meaning from few words, and I effectively require the same of my audience.
What people usually don't understand about me is that they don't know me. Well, they don't know all of me. So much of myself is hidden and even though I tell people that they never get it. They think that I can be summed up into the few parts of myself that they have seen.
I don't talk about who I am much (IRL) and the stuff that really matters to me. People always think I'm more shallow and simple than I am. They don't realize that I spend hours reflecting and thinking about stuff that matters in life.
People also don't understand that I'm very layerd and multifaceted. I have so many different distinct facets. When a new facet comes out people are always like "You are soooo different today!!" I don't know what the heck it is but people always assume that the facet that they usually see encapsulates all of who I am. I never assume stuff like that with other people...unless I know someone really really deeply/well I assume that there's sides of them that I don't know about or just that I don't fully know/understand them.
This one is an ouch...people also assume that I'm more cold-hearted than I am. I'm insanely sensitive on the inside but I hardly ever show it on the outside.
Heh they also think I'm really calm and level headed. I don't know about level headed but I'm definitely not a calm person. I don't know how it is that I portray that IRL.
Also, people don't realize that there's tons of stuff that they don't know cuz I don't tell them. It hardly ever occurs to me to communicate stuff with words to them. I have to conciously remind myself that people need to know what's going on with me and that I need to tell them.
Basically, people don't understand that I am a bunch of stuff inside of a box but all they're seeing is the box.
lol. Yeah I definitely don't expect you to have read all that. That was really long.
People don't get that I like people, but I don't always like to hang out with people all the time. And that I don't just open up to anyone who asks a personal question. They don't get that I'm much less confident than I seem.
