My biggest social faux pas
My biggest social faux pas is openly saying that I’m quite good at something. A relatively trivial thing.The fact that it’s a small oasis of ability in a vast desert of ineptitude matters little. The word ‘bragging’ is often used. For me it stems from deep rooted insecurity rather than believing I’m a superior person. It’s a product of the bullying related trauma that drove a psychological wrecking ball through any self confidence,esteem, and worth I had. A product of having been described as ugly, and treated as though I was rather stupid. With being seen as a ’ freak’ and the mocking laughter and contempt that followed that.
