  • It's super annoying! It seems like every female I get to know starts acting/talking/writing like me and that shit pisses me off. People just don't know how to be themselves and have to practically become someone else to feel validated. Sad. I've dealt with that WAY too much.

  • I don't find it flattering to be immitated. Growing up my little sister loved everything I loved, liked everything I liked, enjoyed everything I enjoyed. I never once thought it was flattering or honoring that she mimiced my every move. I at one point stopped sharing what I liked and didn't like just so I could have something of my own for once. Even when it came to my passion she suddenly was passionate about it .. My other sister followed that suit as well. That to me is disheartening that I couldn't even have my own passion without a following. So yea .. In short (kind of) I really don't find it flattering in the least bit.

  • Because it reminds me of my brother's when we were little saying everything I said, and doing everything I did... now when someone imitates me I just have horrible childhood flashbacks lol
