Misunderstood

What’s something other people think about you that you don’t agree with?

I don’t really know what other people think about me.

I only know what they say they think about me, and how they react physically when I am around.

I long ago accepted that I think and perceive quite differently from most people.

And it seems clear to me that every person is far too complex to be understood be anyone (ourselves included), so the best any of us can hope for is some sort of useful approximation most of the time, and we are all going to get it seriously wrong from time to time- we are all that complex.
