I've been sitting on something that really bugs me, and I don't really have an outlet to vent about it anywhere else. But all of my neighbors who live on the same floor of my apartment building hate and fear me. I get why the fact that I sometimes angrily yelp or talk loudly to myself is off-putting, but did they ever consider I'm equally scared of them? I have stores I go to where people know me, and are perfectly lovely to me, and enjoy my presence and company. And yet, the fact that all of my neighbors believe I am dangerously crazy and do everything in their power to avoid me in the hall makes me feel like utter crap anyways, even if I get along with everyone I talk to elsewhere. If they knew me even a little I wouldn't keep getting contemptuous looks.
