Self-deprecation is not the way to go, is it? A show of confidence, humor, and a little compassion goes a long way. At least, that’s what I believe.
And although I believe that, I fail to be.
Blind assumptions, over-analyzing, and fear makes me weirder than I am. I try to make conversations as natural as possible. But I really can’t do that unless I connect with that person. Who do I connect with? It used to be you, but I have no one anymore.
Darn it, there I go again.
I have a habit of going a step too far:
Quick, quick. Recover this bad situation, tell a pun instead! “Why did the chicken cross the road?” — And of course the other person thinks, “What? I don’t follow this guy’s train of thought. I thought we were talking about [topic]” If they’re nice, they’ll take the time to understand me, and have a “Oh! that’s what you meant!” moment. If they’re not, or not in the mood, they’ll just leave.
I guess it also has to do with timing.
“Why didn’t I meet you earlier?” is what you always said right?
I’m pretty sure this entry here didn’t flow well or make sense either.
Always with Love,
