Being intimidating person
(Yes, this is one of the things certain men found intimidating.) And I like these parts of myself a lot.Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for me a few years ago.I’d love to say that I woke up one day and realized all of this on my own.
Those of us who’s “yes” is “yes” and “no” is “no” and refuse to play any role in this sick, evil, distortions of reality and call the players out on their BS are profoundly intimidating as the preponderance of people prefer to live a life of pure lies.
A few weeks ago, I posted a survey to my Twitter, asking my followers what they wanted to see in this column.
(It’s still live, so you can feel free to add in your two cents!
) I got a whole slew of responses, but versions of the same question kept popping up over and over again: I myself have been called intimidating a lot throughout my life.
It all started with my father who, trying his hardest to console a weepy teenager who didn’t have a date to prom, told me that it wasn’t my fault that men didn’t want to date me. He totally meant it as a compliment — he’d raised a strong, outspoken young woman, and he knew it — so I tried to take it as such.
