Being me is not enough.

Posted 04-21-2010 at 01:43 PM by Anjali
Sometimes it's strange to acknowledge how differently various people perceive me.

Sometimes it's sad to realise none of them actually sees me as I truly am.

People tend to only see what you allow them to see, maybe they're just trapped in the illusion you give off?

I don't know if anyone really sees anything as it really is.

Look at it like this: If they do not see you as you truly are, then show them how wrong they are.
Shove it down their throats till they choke!

Why are you so sure YOU see yourself in the right way?

Not sure why, but you always tell me that I don't see myself the way others see me and that I don't have a good perception of myself, how come the same isn't true for you.

If you really were this awful person or boring person, why would we put up with you? It's not just because you're good looking because its not like we're face to face or like I don't know pretty people who are still boring. It's not because you're rich or because we can mooch off of you or we have something to gain from being around you. And its not like anyone's trying to get you in bed because...well most of us are thousands of miles away...

There's no reason for us to lie to you and tell you how wonderful you are if you aren't. On the internet when someone isn't to your liking you can just simply delete them, block them and do away with them. Did you ever think that we are friends because of something you can't perceive? It's like you're viewing a beautiful house from the inside, you know its great, but you've only got part of the truth. Maybe what people truly see of you and of others isn't something we can see ourselves...if we're humble.

Maybe I should take my own advice...but I won't.

you are rich anjali!?!?!

hey baby, sup?

um ok.. i will be a little serious.

If you think that some people are going to be shallow or superficial, they are. However other people will take another route and be more genuine.

When someone seems too nice, they seem like people pleasers and thus ingenuous. You need to hone your bullshit detection radar if you truly want to be able to decipher between someones true feelings and artificial ones.

The guy above states something that seems too good to be true maybe to someone cynical and used to deceit. But sometimes a person can say it and truly mean it.


However, sometimes you have to trust your own instincts. There comes a time when you become more aware of whats real and whats
not.

It's up to you to believe it, and have faith in your own perceptions of a persons character, and to also acknowledge your own truths hiding behind your own insecurities.

It can be hard to do so sometimes.

Zaru:
Obviously, I know myself better and know more sides of my personality than "outsiders".

Justin:
Lol, who said I think I were awful or boring ? I'm pretty confident as regards my personality. The issue I was talking about is, people fail to see me as I really am. They usually just see a part, a fragment of what I am, and sometimes what they see in me doesn't represent me as a whole.

Amber:
Hello hello, baby
Also, what you said makes sense. It's kind of unrelated to what I was referring to, but I understand what you mean.
If only people were less shallow and actually genuinely nicer.

Obviously? Really now? Sometimes it takes an unbiased outsider to point out obvious things that you are blind to.

I'm not saying others know you better than you do overall, but there are things you might plain and simply be wrong about for whatever reason.

A horribly bitchy girl will not admit to herself that she's a horrible bitch, even though it's obvious for everyone else. She will then say nobody else understands her, or whatever.

(Not saying you're a horrible bitch, lol <3)

I don't think that anyone sees the whole of everyone. You know? I mean even scientifically speaking, we can't see all of what something is alone.

Of course I'm not a horrible bitch.

I rather meant, to be more concrete, that sometimes I am perceived in awfully contradictory ways.
For instance, A sees me as a very calm, cold and emotionless person whereas B thinks me very emotional.

And so on. Point is, it would be lovely if I could just be regarded as I really am. Yet apparently, no matter how much I try to be myself, people still come up with these terribly opposite opinions, and/or see me in the wrong light.

tl;dr shit sucks

Then start by telling people who/what you are instead of letting them guess and then being upset that they got it wrong.

"Oh hai guys, I'm very emotional !"

Could it be the way you are with that person that does it? We don't usually act the same regardless of who we are with. I mean depending on who you ask I'm a terrible heartless asshole or a big soft teddy bear (not my words and I don't like it). But our outward attitude and the different levels of perception can change what people think

The things I thought of when I met you aren't the same ones I think now

You have a "true" self?

We're just a strange mosaic of our past experiences, our biological functions and the society and context that currently surrounds us. Everything beyond that is subjective and, unfortunately, how other people perceive you is no less valid than how you perceive yourself.

As already said, if people don't see you how you want to be seen, you make them see you as that. It's a tricky thing though: if I ever figure it out I'll let you know.

No one cares about who you are.


Just the mark you left in this world.

Which brings the question, does it even matter what something really is?
For that matter, is there such a thing? Is it possible the world is simply a function of combined perceptions?

The world is, to an extent, a function of combined perceptions.

Maybe this is a ridiculous theory, but sometimes I wonder, what if the world is more than what we perceive ? What if what we see is just an illusion ?

A dog's world is sepia coloured, as they cannot distinguish colours. Maybe we cannot distinguish everything either.

We can't, I mean its pretty obvious that there are things humans can't perceive, especially unaided. Its like if a two dimensional creature tried to view a three dimensional object, all it can see is the two dimensional part.

Ah, but can what we cannot possibly see possibly matter?
You can't make any use of knowledge you cannot have.

Isn't this the case for everybody though?
Some are shaped by this, some lose confidence, some change themselves for it.

Different people deal with it in different ways...

its a habit in this life for everyone, get used to it !
