Oh..hello! My title really has nothing to do with reading this blog entry, but more with the topic of it. Question: If we were all forced to wear warning labels, what would YOURS say? Obviously it is something unfortunately negative in your personality or perhaps a glitch..shall we say. I came across the above picture on my daily 'Pinterest' procrastinating and saw that..and it REALLY made me think. It also made me think about how much time it would save us all. I mean, if you were talking to someone and saw their label said "obsessive" or "Phone-call-stalker"..pretty sure you would immediately look the other way. BUT since we don't, we are forced to ACTUALLY get to know people, and their crazy-pants dark underground garage, which they utilize to store bodies of ex boyfriends who wouldn't return their call(s) after the first date.
ANYWAYS, that's neither here nor there and I certainly hope you never have to face anyone like that! Back onto the topic at hand; what would YOUR label say? Mine, would most likely say Overly-Sensitive. Now, I know what you're thinking...really? but yes, unfortunately...I am. I hide it behind a thick layer of pride and egotistical arrogance. It really is more of a curse than a blessing, although, with being this sensitive, I am able to be more compassionate towards others and really try to put myself in their shoes. I know I put up quite an arrogant front and might seem that I don't care when I give you brutally honest advice, but I ALWAYS try to put myself in other peoples shoes before I pass judgment or an opinion. Anyways, my sensitivity. Anything mean, or even jokingly sarcastic anyone says to me, (even if its about something ridiculous I've posted on facebook) is ALWAYS taken too seriously. And yet, no one would know this. I manage to over-think everything ALL the time, and maybe that is my Leo glitches surfacing...we'll just cram those down with some loud, arrogant boasting about how got damn amazing I am (seriously, I'm kidding..).
In any case, this over-sensitivity consumes me sometimes. So much that I start getting on my own damn nerves. I'll find myself saying' Jesus, Laura..toughen up!" or "put your damn purse down and end this tea party.." which is code for, stop taking EVERYTHING so seriously..and stop over thinking it all! I Suppose things could be worse; my label COULD be something like:
- Warning: She WILL go through your shit when your in the bathroom..
- Warning: She has a severe drinking disorder
- Warning: She will call your new girlfriend during the night, in hopes to get back together with you..
- Warning: She WILL cut your hair off, in hopes to always have something to remember you by..
- Warning: She MAY form an obsessive attachment with your man-parts..
- Warning: She WILL force you to watch only girly movies
- Warning: She is a plain o'l Bitch..
- Warning: She IS a stalker
So, when you read those, mine or even yours doesn't seem SO bad. That's all I have time for tonight...but do tell...What would YOUR warning label say?
Love, Laura xoxox
