This isn’t a typical post. It’s a bit of a question with some jumbled thoughts.
Are there moments that you don’t break the silence because you think if the other person wants to talk then they will start the conversation? For me, these moments occur frequently. Recently I’ve started to wonder if maybe that other person feels the same way. This happens to me in multiple situations with multiple people. Often it’s in moments that I could happily stay quiet or speak. Yet, I don’t speak because I don’t want to invade the other person’s quiet. That’s when the awkward comes dancing it’s way merrily into my brain. Awkward!!
What if we all stepped out of that quiet, awkward bubble and made the attempt? Would it silence the chorus of thoughts that occur when awkward dances into the room?
Embrace the awkward and bust the bubble because once you let awkward dance around the room it breeds like crazy little rabbits until the room is full of the damn things.
