Socially Aukward

Once upon a time, I tried to fit in. I tried to be cool, I tried to act comfortable, I tried to chit chat.

But apparently, that’s not what cool people do, because every time I’d do what they did, it blew up in my face.

So what did I do with it? I embraced it. I didn’t try to ignore it, because I knew that then, it would never go away. I found some other friends who found themselves in this same bracket of society. They laughed along with me, and together, we almost looked like other people who talk and laugh. I felt accepted and loved. And it made me realize one important thing that no one should ever forget: I’m not alone. And I’m not the only one. Just because everyone else I see is different, that doesn’t mean no one in the whole world knows how I feel. Some people are social butterflies. That’s awesome. But I, for one, am a social auk. 🙂
