I could say what makes me uncomfortable is eye contact that is too strong, even for a first date. Or sitting in a meeting when two or more of my coworkers are arguing in the most passive aggressive way I’ve ever witnessed in adults. Or when I have to be the one to start the I’m sorry, but this isn’t going to work out conversation instead of being the one on the receiving end of it.
I could say I’ve never felt more uncomfortable than when someone stands to close to me in line/at work/literally anywhere. Or how uncomfortable it is to break in new shoes, especially (and I swear it’s by design), work flats.
I could say I feel incredibly uncomfortable when I don’t know what’s next.
But those things are just part of life. People don’t know boundaries (literally and figuratively). Shoes are often stiff and uncomfortable, just like some conversations. It’s just the way it is.
But if I had to choose just one, I’d say the thing I find most uncomfortable is this: bras.
PS: Many of you have mentioned to me that you try and try, but Squarespace won't allow you to log in to leave a comment. Shout out to anyone who has emailed me their response, and to my friend Emily who once texted it to me. I'm trying to figure out what's going on. I'm also considering posting these on Instagram, but the whole point of these posts was to dust off this space and start using it again.
Anyway, long story still long-- I'm trying to figure out how to fix the comments section. In the meantime, you can email me any comments at email@example.com.
