I don't want to go into it all, but I could use some hugs. Also I'd like to somehow be able to make people assume the best instead of the worst about me just every now and then. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Oh I know what you mean. I am one of the "black sheep" and every time there is drama I get the blame until proven innocent. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

People assume of otherw only what they would do themselves, have experienced, or have witnessed. It really makes me sad what some people must have in their past.

Aww, thank you guys so much! It's so good to have a community to go to where I can ask for hugs and they're so freely given. I really appreciate it and my pregnant self might cry (happily!).

Another's assumptions about you have far more to do with their own experiences and far less to do with you and your intentions.<br><br>
As long as you know your intentions to be good, you are not responsible for how you are understood by others. It can be hard to let that go though.<br><br>
Hugs.

Another black sheep here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wool"><br><br>
People will assume whatever they want. You have no control over that. But...you know what the truth is, even if they don't AND even if they would choose not to believe it. What matters is what is true, not what they believe to be true. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Yeah, I still have a really hard time when I know someone in my family is disappointed, irritated, or completely disagrees with my decisions. I <b>know</b> it shouldn't matter because I am making educated decisions. I'm thinking things through and I've come up with the best solution for me and my family. It's still difficult to shrug off extended family's opinions. I'll keep trying!
