insecurity makes us create stories as explanations.
when we are insecure about something,
we try to throw others off the scent with an elaborate tale.
it never worked because it always comes back to bite you in both cheeks.
your old tales have a way of catching up with your new ones.
when i was insecure about certain things,
i’d explain myself in a way that i thought would make me look good.
it brought more guilt down on my head.
the entry i wrote yesterday about being married/having kids led a foxholer to ask me this:
“Jamari, it would be great to create a post on how to respond to these unwelcomed dating inquiries and hear how others would respond.”
and i have just the response for everyone that works for me…
