Q: How do you make five pounds of fat look good to a man?
A: Put a nipple on it."
I say that I “don’t go out much” but really I’m just too lazy to say “My social anxiety makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and awkward around other people therefore I find it difficult to socialize with them.”
I say that I “am ok I love life”, but really, I’m just too lazy to say “The challenges that I am currently facing, combined with my fears about the future are bringing me down, therefore I find it difficult to motivate myself.”
Tell me I’m not wrong. I love working with other people everyday, going to yoga say helllo!!! ( big hug. ( I wish this was from my mother) laugh , smile) from one trade to the next. I want to get my nails done. But when I get home. I want to stay home. In a bubble. To cleanse. This is ok. To know what you want. Not what others think you should do.
To recharge and collectively think about the next move. To notice space. Like I between each breath. That slight lift in the diaphragm. The fall of the exhale. To let go.
