I totally get Fiona Apple.
Because she is misunderstood by many people, and I can relate to that.
Fiona has been accused many times of being sullen, unstable, overly sensitive, melodramatic, etc. She is none of those things. Yes, she is sensitive (due to her inherent nature, the cruel treatment she endured in grade school, and having been raped at age 11)…. but she is not TOO sensitive and her feelings are not unjustifiable. And on top of that, there’s nothing wrong with being a sensitive person.
If Fiona is anything, she’s HONEST. She is the most honest person perhaps ever to walk this earth. She’s direct and doesn’t do small talk. Basically, if she has nothing to say, she says nothing. She doesn’t talk or write unless she has a reason. Honest, true to herself, no bullshit…. and that makes people very uncomfortable. But that’s on them, not her.
I have been accused many times of being angry, mean-spirited, overly sensitive, too outspoken, etc. I am none of those things. Yes, I am sensitive (due to my inherent nature and my upbringing)…. but I am not TOO sensitive and on the rare occasion that my feelings are unjustifiable, I own it. And on top of that, there’s nothing wrong with being outspoken.
If I am anything, I am particular. And I am direct. I have strong opinions and I like to make them known. I rant. I employ hyperbole at times as a vehicle for making my point. And I have a low irritation threshold. But I am very rarely angry and I certainly don’t hate anyone (other than maybe people who torture animals). I try to be honest and true to myself… and when I bullshit, I freely admit it. I deeply appreciate the people who understand and appreciate me because I think most don’t. And because they don’t, they feel uncomfortable. But that’s on them, not me.
