All methods of "measuring" you socially in one manner or another, either stating that you fit in well or that you are not conforming when you "really should". Said "really should" being in their eyes, to the illusions in their mind, to the image that they have of you.
Strip away the morality.
Look at the reality.
With a cold and emotionless evaluation - what are we really looking at here? Why are they attempting to tell me something by measuring me in this manner?
If it is a "positive" measuring: I accept you as you are. Thank you.
If it is a "negative" measuring: why are they saying this? Are they expecting/wanting me to change? Is this desire for change because they wish to connect with me? Why do they want to change me to their internal image of me? Do they feel threatened? Why do they feel threatened? How is it that I feel threatening towards them? Do I make them feel uncomfortable about themselves? Why is it that I make them feel uncomfortable about themselves? Is it because they feel uncomfortable looking at themselves? Are they afraid of themselves? Why are they afraid of themselves? If they looked at themselves, would they not measure up to their own image of themselves?
Chains upon chains upon chains of unending questions involving self-reflection and self-evaluation and self-analysis.
Do I really wish to be accepted and approved of by them? If they are too frightened to look at themselves?
Am I too frightened to look at myself in this way also?
