I wish I was better at this, better at hiding my feelings, and thoughts and emotions.
I was asked a question today by someone who sees me fairly frequently, a question I had not prepared an answer to. I hesitated, stuttered and blurted out, ‘Nothing’ with so much uncertainty. I could tell by the expression on their face that they saw right through me, but understood that it wasn’t something I wanted to discuss, and so dropped the topic.
At least now I can try and prepare some answers for that question if it crops up again, and hopefully rehearse it well enough that it sounds natural. Maybe even to the point where I myself start to believe it.
