If you have a rich social life, a significant other,
no stagefright, and have NEVER been harassed/bullied for being socially awkward,
You do not know what it is.
If you've never cried while ordering pizza over the phone, stuttered while doing
presentations in class,
been called awkward and weird by people, CRIED in the middle of your singing your
at an important contest due to stagefright, stop.
Being awkward was NEVER "cute".
You were never picked on since your childhood days
for being the weird outcast.
Having fucking social anxiety is not cool.
You call yourselves awkward, but I see you acting plenty normal with your
group of totally "acceptable to society" friends.
And I see you doing great when you talk in front of people. Eye contact,
no stuttering, and organized.
That's right. I don't even LIKE talking to adults or strangers because
of my paranoia. Feeling like they're criticizing your every flaw and looking down on
and laughing at you on the inside and later on telling their peers
about how stupid you are.
I was fucking harassed in 9th grade Art class for being socially awkward.
You just need to shut up and stop trying to think awkwardness is cute.
