In life in general, I feel that it is very easy for many people to be misunderstood. Some people are quick to make judgments as well as assumptions about others based on their appearance or due to their own beliefs. I can definitely say that I have been misunderstood plenty of times throughout high school as well as college whether it was from my own peers, my teachers, or even my family members/ parents. Even now as a 21 year old senior in college, I am constantly misunderstood. Working at Albany High School, teachers, staff members and the students always mistake me for a high school student. They may talk to me or treat me as a younger individual, and that can definitely be extremely frustrating. It’s not until I began to speak that they recognize the fact that I am not as young as I appear to be. I feel that one way to get through that frustrating feeling of being misunderstood is to stay true to who you are and to communicate what you feel to others. You should not be suppressing those feelings, but by expressing them and openly communicating them with others, you are allowing them to see your true feelings and who you truly are as an individual, and not just what they want to see.
