I am the personification of awkward. I can’t eat or drink anything without spilling it on myself like a child, I almost always say the wrong thing for the situation, I can’t walk and … well … do anything at the same time, and I may or may not have waltzed out of the house to head to an important work or social event wearing two different shoes. And not just once. Twice. OK, FINE. Several times.
I used to be self-conscious about my awkward tendencies, worrying about saying and doing the wrong thing to the point of driving myself mad. But these days? These days I’ve learned to embrace it.
Awkward is just who I am. And you know what? I’m cool with it. It might actually be an endearing quality. (And if it’s not, shhhhh. This is what I’m choosing to tell myself. Just go with it.)
You may wonder, “How did you get to a place of awkwardness acceptance?” Let me tell you. I learned to laugh at myself. Laughter is, after all, the best medicine.
And this is why I absolutely love these hilarious memes that only naturally awkward people will truly appreciate. Check them out, have a chuckle at your own expense (or at the expense of those awkward people you love), and don’t forget to click on the links to follow these funny meme-makers on their social media channels for more.
Our awkwardness is adorable. ADORABLE, I SAY.
