This weekend we had a year-end function to attend. I didn’t know anyone as it was people that Tommie works with.
I realized when I walked away there that due to my insecurity or maybe me not wanting to be looked down upon I may be seen as a snob. Seen as a show off. Maybe people sum me up as thinking that I’m better than others. THAT would be horrible for me. Absolutely horrible. I would hate for people to think that I think I’m ‘better’. I don’t. I never have and it upsets me when someone thinks they are ‘more’ than another because of what they do or who they know or …
Thing is this. People often tend to think that I’m a housewife. A stay-at-home mom. Maybe because I talk about my kids. A lot. However when people ask me if I am a SAHM I make sure they understand that I have my own practise. That I’m an accountant. That I’m more than just my husband’s wife. My kid’s mother.
Why? Firstly why do I feel the need to point out that I have my own business? And is that wrong? Does it make me look like a snob or do I just inform the people of what I really do?
Sometimes I wish I could just meet me …. just see me the way others do when they first meet me. I don’t want to pretend to be something and someone I’m not. I’m not pretencions and don’t want people to think I am.
