Fiction: Things People Have Said to Me

Control yourself.  You must be better than everyone else.  You should go to University. Don’t make remarks.  That is too low-cut. You don’t have any perspective.

You are flexible. You’re in your own little world. You are simple.

You should be more compassionate. I didn’t know you were angry. You are an old soul.

You will make a contribution. You possess deep wells of musicianship. I think we should get married.

You’re like a cat.  You land on your feet. You always have your nose in a book.

You are complicated.

I don’t understand you.

Why did you say that to me?
