Awkward moments.

@postaday 203; #postaday2011.

There are some things with which I struggle.

When I ask someone a question and I know they aren’t telling me the truth, I get quiet. I cannot call them on it.

When my understanding of a situation seems valid, yet I cannot explain it to someone else, I feel judged.

When my smiles or greetings fall into a void, I wonder why I bother.

John always tells me to smile and greet freely, to embrace my nontraditional ways and succeed, and to know the truth isn’t always mine to set free.

I wish you well.
