It only took me recently to realize you learn more about yourself as you grow older.
I learned that I may not be social to most people. I also learned that I have this amazing ability to reconnect with old friends. I may not be the friendliest person but I will always acknowledge you even if we met just once. Awkward encounters are avoidable but I rather take charge of any interaction.
I learned that I may not be a butterfly in social circles but people seem to feel safe with me. Haha maybe it’s because I’m a total nerd and they feel unthreatened or maybe some other outside perspective that I cannot see.
