Preconceived Notions

I have come to the conclusion that I cannot get too excited about things, and I am often perceived wrong by people. I am looked at in a couple of different ways which allows for preconceived notions. I am lucky if I have a good interaction with someone where I feel I was perceived as myself. However, I am often looked past and not recognized for who I actually am. 

Luckily, I have learned that people’s perceptions of me are only their perceptions. I have a choice of whether to take on how they see me and pay mind to it. I don’t have to. I can go about just knowing that I stay true to myself, and how they see me is not who I actually am. 

Many times in life, we take people’s perceptions of us and choose to waste our energy on believing them or taking it on as something we have to prove wrong. Have someone ever said something about you and you have felt so compelled to make sure you prove them wrong and defend yourself? Well…you do not have to do that. You are making a choice to take that on and put your energy into it. So from now on, I am going to be who I am, I am not going to try to tailor myself to someone else’s personality or likes and dislikes. That is exhausting. Nobody actually knows me. Ok bye, I am glad I have this blog.
