Do you ever wonder how awkward you are?
You observe people who you believe are awkward to be labeled “really awkward,” and you yourself may sometimes think that you are an awkward person, but chances are that you are not really all that awkward, and that it is simply your inner dialogue or re-evaluation of events that makes you perceive yourself as awkward.
I sometimes take part in social situations where i feel awkward: the awkward fifth wheel, the lingering-too-long-on-a-subject, the uncomfortable hugs you get while departing social situations with people who you normally wouldn’t hug….
Tonight, I left a situation feeling a bit awkward.
And it makes me wonder…. how awkward am I truly?
And how awkward are you?
