No. But I do believe deeply that my embarrassment is superior. And the confidence in my shame is superior than most of the people I meet every day. ‘Hey, Sasho, whatcha doin’?’ ‘I don’t know!.’ ‘Great!’ ‘Best friends forever.’ And by simply not taking myself seriously, I’m better than those feeling like they’re more than they are, and considering only their own critical judgement without actual communication. I’ve noticed in class today someone acting completely care-free, until she was asked to explain if she judges other people and herself. Then her manner changed, because she replied honestly about what makes her feel anxious and started expressing how hard she is on herself.
Bottom line, don’t judge a book by its cover, unless it’s really tasteless looking and written by an adult with questionable childhood.
