I don’t know why, but it seems to me that amongst my peers, my opinion is often overlooked and passed off as impractical and useless. What it boils down to is lack of respect and a general unwillingness to listen to my point of view. I feel like whenever I have an idea that is even slightly far fetched, people automatically dismiss it, as if its not worthy of there consideration. The weird part is that I only get this among people my own age. My bosses, parents, and older acquaintances all seem to value my opinions very much.
So what gives? Do anyone of you have the same thing going on? Is it possible that I come off as arrogant or something? I never thought I sound arrogant, considering my self confidence is that of a 13 year old girl.
How about you guys/gals? Do you get mutual respect from people?
