30 Things: Number 29

29. What do you think people misunderstand most about you?
I love to talk to people, and I love to listen and help others.  I think I sometimes come across differently than that, but my intentions are always good.  They come from the heart. 
How can a person REALLY know another person unless they live with them day in and day out?  You can’t.  Example:  Someone I went to high school with was always very quiet and never spoke to me much, even when we were adults with children of our own.  I thought she couldn’t stand me, and wanted nothing to do with me.  I found out years later through communicating in an online social forum that she was extremely shy and afraid to talk to people.  It had nothing to do with me at all!  She’s a beautiful person, and I am happy to now be friends with her after all this time. 
What we perceive about others may or may not be accurate.  We need to put judgments aside, and assume the best.
