How are you seen through other people

Do you ever wonder how you are viewed by others? I'm not sure about you, but I feel most people actually do wonder/worry about this. I, however, am not that way. I really am very truthful in life as well as in my blog. I'm sure I come across as unstable at times, romantic at other times, and that of a bad boy at other times. The truth is, they are all ways that I truly am.

I think too many people are insecure about how others view them. I used to be. I was the kid in highschool that didn't understand why some were popular and why I wasn't. When I got to college, after having joined the military, I found out what my limits were and I realized that I was a catch. I understood that I just would be myself and that I was a lot tougher mentally and physically than I ever knew before.

In college, because of my direct nature, and take no shit attitude, I was pretty well respected. I was asked to join a fraternity, and I did. In college, I was kind of popular, but wasn't looking for it.

Now, I'm no different. I'm not sure why I've been labled a partial bad boy, but I would have to assume it's because I don't back down from anybody when in a confrontation. I am willing to fight at a drop of a hat.

At other times, I'm labled a romantic. I believe this is where my heart resides most of the time. I believe, most of the time, that love conquers all. I believe that people can overcome adversity if they are willing to fight for it.

I'm not complacent about my relationships, but I won't beg anybody either. In my past relationship with my ex, I begged. I became a wuss. I was totally not the man she met and I couldn't realize that this made me even more unattractive. Now, I understand that people make their decisions and that I just have to be good with it and respect it. It's a hard thing. When my former 'Boomerang Bitch' said see ya later, I almost resorted to begging. Hell, I might've; however, it didn't last long if I did.

So, if I have to analyze how people view me from the outside, I would have to assume that they understand I'm human and that I too have human issues. I have to assume they don't agree with how I deal with situations, but that I am my own person and I deal w/ things differently than everybody else. I have to assume that they like me also being very open and romantic. I'm not sure they like that I'm somewhat of a bad boy, but I think they would respect my standing up for what I believe in.

How do people view you?? Are you ok with that?

I have several sons. The youngest is by far the most popular among his friends, girls, peers, and those younger than him. He has a simple philosophy. They ...meaning everyone else, when asked why he is so popular by my oldest son about girls...are just people too.
He simply treats people with the respect he expects to receive from others. The catch is of course we all "know" everyone else "are just people too", but he "believes" it. Which makes all the difference in the world. Hmmmm. I don't know if I explained that well. How about HE lives the golden rule instead of just paying lip service to it the way most of the rest of the world does.

I am just me, a down home country gal. I think others see me as being a strong person, leader. Hell, I have my weak points, its just they dont see me cry. I have this tone of voice that I cant describe, lol. They think I am "mean" at work? I have lots of kids and they know when I use that tone of voice, they better get the job done, lol. But deep down, I am just a kind person. No bad bone in my body. I have never been popular and never wanted to be. I always look inside a person, never judge, and treat everyone the way you would want to be treated. Not everyone is like that. No one is alike anyway. If there is something I want or someone I want, it more than likely wont happen. I am not that forward. I am not a go getter. I take one day at a time and only dream of the future. It doesnt matter to me what people think of me, they wouldnt tell me anyway.
Of course, I probably just confused alot of people, but that normal!!!

I think we all care what others think, but I am glad to come across honest people like you.
