You Don't Know Me || #BehindTheBlogger

You don't know me AT ALL...

...if you think my sweet, innocent, "girl next door" exterior means I am unaware, naive, or too "meak".

...if you think I'll say that I like something just to make YOU like ME. I won't put up with something I dislike just to impress someone else.

...if you don't know that I would drop anything and everything just to be there for someone if they asked me to.

...if you think that I expect that everyone's brain is wired the same way as mine.

...if you haven't yet heard my story about recovering from an eating disorder {read about that HERE!!}.

...if you haven't figured out that I am more easily distracted than Dory! And if you think that it means I don't care about things. I really try hard to stay focused on one task, but that's one of many reasons why I'm not a Type A personality. And I'm okay with that.

...if you don't know my primary love language...which is GIFTS! And not because I'm super materialistic and love "stuff", but because when I receive a gift, it shows that you know me well enough to know what I would like. It tells me that something reminded you of me, and you put thought into picking it out. That means the world to me!

...if you don't know that I get incredibly tense and stressed out when I am being micromanaged or controlled.

...if you don't know that I don't do well in the mundane. I try to find new joys in the "same old, same old" routine, but I need variety in my life!

...if you ask me for a long term plan. Most of the time I don't know what I'm doing TOMORROW! My brain is constantly floating around and I'm always changing my mind. That's just how my personality is, and I LIKE change!

...if you don't know that I suffer from SERIOUS F.O.M.O {fear of missing out}!

...if you aren't aware that I feel emotions very deeply, both happy & excited emotions as well as sad emotions...and I appreciate when people accept and validate my feelings.

...if you think that the reason I dress up all the time is for anyone other than MYSELF.

...if you think I'm not sorry every. single. time I finish a sentence for someone or talk over someone accidentally. My mouth moves faster than my brain sometimes. I'm a talker. I don't mean for it to happen.

...if you think I notice details. I don't. I walk into a room and I see the room. It would be completely terrible if I were asked by the guys on Criminal Minds to close my eyes and remember details. Guarantee you I would not recall a thing. It's just not what I'm looking at.

...if you forget that I hate saying no to people, but at the same time get super overwhelmed by having too much going on!

...if you don't know that I need people around me when I'm feeling down. People make me feel better.

...if you think I'm capable of forgetting anything ever said to me...either positive or negative.

...if you think that me wanting to get to know you means I want your favorite color. No, I want to know your HEART. Give me the good stuff!

And most importantly, you definitely don't know me...

...if you think you CAN'T or SHOULDN'T get to know me. I am an open book! I'll tell you anything you want to know! Happy to! :))
{Oh yeah...and I like using "smileys" and "frownies"}

Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level.  Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!


  1. Boy this sounds familiar .... I hardly ever forget what people tell me to (and sometimes hold a grudge a bit too long cause of it). FOMO huh? Me too! haha, I want to know every single detail of an event if I miss out on it!

  2. I suffer from F.O.M.O. too, but have definitely had to learn to live with it because of school/my job/other obligations.

    I hate saying no to people as well. :[ I like being able to help as much as possible and I have a tendency to put others' needs before my own. I've been getting slightly better about it though!

    I remember the things people say to me too--good or bad!

  3. You and I are a lot alike I see. I also have a huge problem saying no to people and I tend to put others feelings and happiness way ahead of my own which a lot of times makes me miserable and then causes me to stress out. I really need to put the word "no" back in my vocabulary.
