i wrote a song… in my mind

bet you can’t

with one comment

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.

  1. I think doubt hurts. It’s natural especially when we know we perform the task well. Maybe it’s a little bit of pride as well but I can’t see you getting angry. I will get angry.
