I am not an animal, I’m a human being… or am I?


Over the years, I've notice that people, in general, tend to react to me in various ways. I seem to make many of them uneasy. Some instantly hate me (even if we never spoke) and some just seem to click with me. Not too many seem to be indifference to me. Someone made a comment…
