The other week it was “my time of the month”.
All ladies will know that this is never a convenient period and I definitely don’t cope with it very well.
Someone noticed I looked a bit off.
“I can see your not doing well, don’t come near me, I don’t want to get ill”, he said.
Well, dear male person, don’t you worry.
I don’t think you will be dealing with a bloating belly, tender breasts and certainly you won’t bleed from down there any time soon.
Now that winter is knocking on our doors, I also have, like many others, caught a cold.
This made me think twice before I going into the canteen to have lunch.
I knew that if I would only cough just a slight bit, people would act paranoid.
But what if I decided to go home, everyone would judge me as well with “she can’t handle anything”.
I often feel like whatever I do, I am doing it wrong.
When I am feeling excited about something, people think I am loud and annoying.
When I am quiet, people won’t even notice me.
When I am wearing black and white, it’s boring.
But I have been told many colors don’t suit me.
When I’m eating people would give me the “watch out, it goes straight to your ass” “advice”.
When your appetite is a little less, you’d get the “stop these crazy diets of yours”.
When you drink 2 glasses of wine, people assume you’re drunk.
When you don’t drink, you’re dull.
I don’t care too much about what people think of me, but you can’t avoid it either.
Most of the day you will be surrounded by them, so it could be nice to feel accepted at least.
The question “How do I make myself loveable towards others?” has always bothered me.
So far, my tactic of being just quiet, but friendly has not really helped me.
For some reason, it makes people think I am fragile.
And nobody likes the weak ones.
I always feel like I have to earn the respect from others.
Nobody needs to earn my respect.
People are too complicated for my abstract brain.
This is probably why I choose an engineering education.
Apparatus can be equally annoying, but at least they won’t judge you 😉
What are you tips and tricks to make yourself loveable towards others?
