#SoCS Oct 01/16– Awkwardly Me

October 1, 2016

for Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt: Awkward


I think I came out of the womb awkward. I know I spent my childhood feeling awkward around others, preferring to be off to myself doing my own thing, which usually involved living in my head. I never felt quite “right” around my siblings or my parents, and I had few friends in school because no one was as awkward as I was and therefore, in my reasoning, they wouldn’t understand. Of course, I know now why I’ve always felt this way, but as a child I hadn’t a clue. I just figured that I was too strange and bizarre for everyone else out there. I became quite the recluse and never quite outgrew that.

These days, I just keep to myself because I enjoy my own company and I don’t have to pretend to be someone else just to fit in. I have found a few others who are kind of awkward like me. We can sit in silence, with no awkwardness between us. Or discuss all things nerdy and geeky for hours. Still, I keep even these few at a distance.

Right now, I am feeling a bit awkward as I search for the words I want to express here. As a writer, it is hard for me to admit that my mind cannot grasp words and ideas and put them into some coherent post. Alas, this is now my reality. Time to take an awkward pause.

  1. You remind me that it’s perfectly okay to be who we are. After 30 years of working outside the home, I’ve cut back to one day a week and I LOVE staying at home with just me and the dogs. Even with a psychology degree and being a decent counselor, I’m finally honoring that I’ll always be an introvert at heart. And there’s not a thing wrong with that!

    • Thanks, JoAnna. I hope the cutbacks help you and I hope you continue to grow and realize that who you are is perfectly OK. *hugs*

  2. I think it was coherent 🙂
    I also somewhat relate. Some days more than others.

What's on your mind? Let me know!

It is all about words. Your words are enough to shatter someone's heart. Your words are enough to make a broken heart unbroken. Words have the power to change your life perspectives.
