    What has someone told you about yourself that you didn't realize before they said anything to you?

    That I always forget to think about myself first that in order for me to really see and feel happiness I need to think of myself first. What if my source of happiness is helping others, that comes to my mind and it make sense to me.

    I'm guessing that it happened to you, to make you ask the question.  It's always a shock to hear something that you didn't realise about yourself.  It happened to me recently.  A friend told me that she saw me a few times before we became friends, but she didn't talk to me because I didn't look very friendly.  I was kind of hurt that someone would think that about me.  But then who can look happy and friendly all the time?

    that I look and act exactly like Kelly Rippa...had no clue but since that first incident, it happens all the time. I was in a store that I frequent often and one day the clerk said "you know, I don't tell people that you come in her, I figured you want your privacy." I had no idea what she was talking about.
    I looked at her and said "excuse me?" She laughed and said "you're that Kelly on tv!!!" I had to go home and look in the mirror...I still don't see it.

    Years ago I was talking to a woman I worked with about my 2 years old daughter and how feminine she was. I joked that she sure didn't get that from me.  And the gal said, "what are you talking about, you are very feminine."

    I had no idea that this was how I appeared to other people.  I asked a couple of friends who told me she was right.   It is very possible that our pictures of ourselves do not match what others see in us.

    moonfairy - now I am anxious to see a picture of you!  :-)

    I was told by a co-worker that I have filter issues. I was surprised by that and starting paying more attention to the things I say, and you know what she was right. I don't speak fluff. If you ask me a straight forward question, you get a straight forward answer. To some people it's a filter issue for me it's honesty.

    Someone told me that I look like Gonzo from the Muppet Show. I've realized he had a point. But I also had a point when I told him he looked like Phil Collins, even though he was only 23 at the time. big_smile

    Actually someone told me years ago I was too focused on the past, when I should be looking to the future. I had never thought about that, but had to recognize to myself it was very much true. That really made me very mad. Not at the person, but at myself, for doing that and for being so transparent after all. I fight against that every day since then.

    many years ago I was talking to a group of ladies and we were discussing personality issue. One of those ladies looked at me and said I was intimidating because I was so sure of myself all the time. I never saw that side, but since then I recognized that I have a way of asserting myself and that can be viewed as intimidating.
