This was a question posed by [ profile] zevhonith in her journal.

Do you think that other people see you the way you see yourself?

This was my response.
I would think they do. I'm sure that's not the case, in that we each have a unique perspective, but I tend to live my life very openly. If you ask me a question, I'll give you a straight answer. It's not always what you want to hear, but I hope my honesty is why they ask in the first place. I tend to live by example, or at least I think I do.

I used to have a very low self image, but I'm learning other ways to see myself. I don't live in Self-Actualizationville 100% of the time, but I do own some property there. *smiles* I hope that others see me as a fun, good-natured, well-meaning person, for that's how I see myself.

I put a lot of thought into the answer, but it left me thinking how the way others see me differs from my own opinions of myself. I believe it is very circumstantial, at times. When I pun, many people don’t appreciate it. Therefore, I conclude that they don’t find me as funny as I find myself. So, I imagine that all of you don’t see me quite as I do. It would amuse me (and, quite likely, educate me) greatly to pick around in your brains and have a see of myself.

So, for a limited time only, I am now authorizing a Deconstructing MiLady post. Here’s your chance to tell me something about myself that you feel I don’t know. Tell me something annoying, or something I need to work on...whatever you feel is appropriate. You can tell me you hate my laugh, that I’m too blunt or that you don’t like the way I comb my hair. Whatever you feel will be useful to me. Tough love is appreciated. To make sure you are perfectly frank, I’ll screen all the posts before they are published online. That way, you can tell me if you’d prefer it wasn’t known. Feel free to also post as anonymous.

I’ll be sorely disappointed if someone doesn’t post. I’m looking forward to using this as a growth experience. It would be hard to insult me, especially since I’m asking for opinions, so don’t hold back. Thank you, in advance, for participating.
