bet you can’t
you know when you were a kid and other kids would try to make you do stupid stuff by saying, “betcha can’t _______.” and you’re be like, “nuh uh!!” and then you’d either break your arm or look like a hero.
i kind of go through a similar situation as an adult. one of the things that makes me really angry is when people don’t think i can do something that i can. it’s different from the childhood scenario in that when you’re a kid and someone dares you to do something, you don’t know if you can do it. you may think you can, but you don’t know it. in my situation, i can clearly perform said task and yet sometimes people doubt i can do it.
it hurts to know someone doubts your abilities. it stinks to be misunderstood. i definitely care what other people think. i don’t want people to think i’m some inept, clumsy oaf when i’m really a very competent clumsy oaf. maybe i shouldn’t care, i just hate the thought that someone would think something about me that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
