Misconceptions About Me

I have realized that People could be judgmental on our physical looks, our appearance most often is the first biography people read. How I grew up to have a very innocent face is what I can't explain, and people who have such gentle faces are stereotyped to be free from anything immoral and sinful. Alright, I'm not a bad guy, in fact I'm a little bit better than good but that doesn't mean I'm not human. On several occasions people have said to me "I never would have believed you could do this and that '' like they expect me to be perfect or not get caught-I'm sounding like a criminal here, hahaha. The truth is, everyone who sees me somehow has this first impression that I'm perfect and innocent just as my face. But my face is what I can't change, I just allow people to believe what they want to and I try to live my best and be myself instead of acting to fit in what they assume me to be. There was a time I felt bad though, the words came from a woman who was living next door. I had jokingly lied about something and she was like "I never believed you could lie, If not that you spoke it directly to me, I wouldn't have believed anyone else ''.

Another misconception people have about me is that "I don't get angry" when in fact, I get angry easily. While I was growing up, I realized how extreme I go whenever I was angry and I caution myself to work upon it. It took a few years but I was able to tame it whenever I smile and give myself a few reasons why it's not worth it. This I do whenever I'm angry (smile and wave it off) and people started to believe I don't get angry. Most often when I ask people to tell me what they know about me, everyone includes I don't get angry, I just smile and whenever I tick it wrong, they argue about it. Sometimes, I don't like people having such an idea about me, it makes them do whatever they wish around me with the thought that I wouldn't agree and this I have seen a lot of people do on several occasions.

Finally, people think I'm an extrovert. I never was and never was. I've been an introvert since the first day I knew myself but I try as much as possible to relate with people when in public or social places, but once I'm out of there, I always want to be on my own. I enjoy the comfort of my room much more than hanging out-just the few people around my vicinity know me to be the indoor type. I don't bother explaining myself, I allow people to figure out this part of me for themselves. I like it when people outside my vicinity think I'm social, that's because I'm trying to learn and I hope I'm able to learn fairly enough for myself and my future wife.

I have never seen your face so I can't say what your face looks like 😄😄 but I know few people who have very innocent faces and these people are always thought as can do no wrong. Have you heard the popular saying that cultists are the most gentle guys you can find around? This way you can never believe they are into a cult.

As for smiling always, if only people know that behind that smile can be something very unpleasant 😄😄. Unfortunately I'm the opposite. I don't smile a lot so people think I'm harsh. Thanks for your entry.
