I don’t know if this has ever happened with you but it often happens with me. Sometimes when someone says something to me that I don’t know what and how to answer, I just stand there looking for an answer and completely out of context. This makes me look like an idiot and for no good reason. This is where I really feel like I shouldn’t be having a conversation with anyone outside of the text messaging platforms. I mean they are damn good. One gets to say whatever he wants to. Even if you don’t know what to reply, you don’t have to look like a stupid idiot in front of anybody. You get to save face and can avoid such circumstances.
But then I find one thing that makes me believe that face to face convos are the best. Here we get to, like truly express ourselves. I mean we get to show how excited we are, how sad we are and it’s easy to guess if the other person is faking. The spirit is there and there is honesty.
For a socially awkward person like me, it is difficult to maintain the flow in a conversation and chances are high for me to act stupid. But this is what keeps the weirdness alive, pushes us to extremes and the confusion has humor of its own.
That’s all I had to say. Wish you a great experience ahead. Keep writing, keep pushing!
