-My high school science teacher telling me not to waste his time asking him to explain anything. I was just dumb blonde and I would never get it.
-My dance instructor pointing to me during rehearsal and saying VERY LOUDLY, "big girls to the back".
-My parents telling everyone, in front of me, that my sister was the smart one.
-My soon to be ex husband telling me that is was my fault he was cheating on me. If I was prettier, sexier, more agreeable, dressed better, etc.....etc.... etc.......
Those are a few of a long list of things that have shaped me to become the person I am today. I want break free of these false perceptions of others that I have owned to be true. I want to wipe the slant clean and see who I truly am through my own clear lens.
