I'm a peculiar type of person. Often I would hear query from people whom I think are just too curious that they will bombarded you with questons. Like why are you like that or why don't you like that. I've read a quotation that you don't have to explain yourself to anyone. People who known you don't need an explanation and those who don't know you wouldn't believe if you give them one. Just want to share this to you guys. Share your thought about it.

it is up to my mood. if i'm in good mood, then i don't feel bother to introduce myself to others. if not, then i don't like to talk with others. so how can i introduce myself to them? it is up to the others, too. if they are kind persons, then i would like to introduce myself to them, and i hope to make friends with them. if they are arrogant, then i dont' even want to give them a glance. sometimes i dont' want to judge a person by his/her appearance, but i can't.

So basically its all depends in your mood. so it does applies to you the saying first impression lasts. I do too believe in that saying in some occassions although I try not to judge a person.

I don't, I am not used to talking to people just to prove myself on them. I know what I am capable of and what I am worth for, so I don't need to explain or point out something just for them to believe me. My time is very precious to waste it talking to them, let them believe and think what they want to if that's what'll make them happy.

Yes I give explanations to few people in my life. Only to those who really close to my heart. That is because those who want explanations from you are not your real close ones and those are really close to you will never want explanations from you but still you will enjoy giving explanations to them. It does not diminish your self respect but enhances the relation.

I don't like explaining myself to others. I don't see any reason to do so. I catch myself justifying my actions to myself sometimes and then I realize I don't need to do so and nobody has to know. I don't like having excuses for mistakes I do. I say mistakes because an explanation is usually given for your lapses. I believe in doing your best and avoiding mistakes. So, as much as possible there should be no justifications for your lapses. There are people, however, who like to explain everything to other people. My mom does that and its so annoying. I remember Woody Allen's movie where he was Sheldren (I don't know if that's the right spelling). Anyway, if you saw that old movie, you'll understand. I forgot the title. LOL. That's about it. Have a nice day1
