  • That I respect others for their "way of life" so respect me for mine. I am not shy and quiet so stop telling me to be a woman and stand in a corner and I should be seen but not heard because that only makes me want to be louder and more obnoxious! =D

  • My husband and I were talking about this last night. I wish that some people would understand that I'm not stuck up, I just tend to be shy and not as outgoing as my husband. Given that he is a radio personality, it's his job to be outgoing and talk on the radio, not mine. So just because I don't spill my life or there are certain things I prefer him to keep off the air waves, it doesn't mean I'm stuck up or uppity, I'm just more reserved than he is...

  • I wish people would understand that I don't want to spend my time listening to and solving other people's problems when they aren't doing a damn thing to help themselves.

  • I'm very shy but once people get to know me I warm up pretty good to them. I'm so shy I haven't been out in ages.

  • That I don't need or want you to "fix" me. I want you to respect my dignity and right to be who I am, just as I respect yours...

  • Nothing really.. the people who matter know me very well and don't question a thing =) For those who havent figured me out by now, they probably never will =)~

  • that i prefer you to be upfront with me when something's up with you, rather than all of a sudden bitchy & irritated to get your point across. don'r't have time for that!

  • That just because I'm not arguing with you does not mean you should assume I agree with you. I'm quiet, not "nice". And I'm not your doormat to be taken advantage of.

  • That I have a will of iron and nerves of steel. That I should not ever be underestimated in a work situation and that I will go for blood if I need to. That I am inherently kind but don't suffer fools gladly. That I adore my husband and no one better mess with him!

  • That just because I look fine and you can't see inside me, I have a serious heart condition that really restricts me. It's DH's family who just doesn't get it, they think I should have no problem going out and getting at least a part time job, running around outside with the kids, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, etc. I cannot do it, I'm not allowed to do it by my cardiologist, and they just don't get it.
