People assume things about me that are not true because they don’t really know me. I’m an anti-social butterfly and very guarded which makes establishing friendships kinda hard, but I need to trust those I’m around. I no longer force myself to go along with the program for the sake of fitting in or “wanting to be down”. I’m just too old and don’t have to be down. I’m compassionate, dependable, and I love my people, but most times I’d rather be home sipping on a glass of wine, reading, writing, or creating something beautiful. This is who I am.
Don’t judge me by every family event I somehow seem to miss.
Did you know that I have issues that no one knows persist?
Don’t judge me because I’m quiet and never have much to say.
Did you know by keeping my mouth shut, I respect you in so many ways?
Don’t judge me by the way I choose to live and keep my children close.
Did you know they hear what others say when they’re not supposed to?
Don’t judge me by the way you feel I treat someone you love.
Did you know your loved one looks down on those they think they are above?
Don’t judge me.
You really don’t know me.
