In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Game of Groans.”

Think about an object, an activity, or a cultural phenomenon you really don’t like. Now write a post (tongue in cheek or not — your call!) about why it’s the best thing ever.

i don’t like small talk. but i already wrote about that i think. i don’t like how i assume things. i don’t like assumptions. it’s a quick way to draw the wrong conclusions about pretty much everything because nothing is ever what it seems. and to think that i know so much as to assume the outcome or the personalities or the motivations of people in a particular situation is actually pretty arrogant. i don’t like that i do this.

i think i usually do this when i’m on autopilot. i guess i should explain that phenomenon- i live on autopilot sometimes, as someone with depression it can be easier to do in the short run but not very beneficial in the long run. or maybe it’s just what i do for efficiency. i don’t tend to invest very much emotionally or personally into situations or people sometimes and i’ve been starting to realize that that is actually really hurting me.

it’s important to let people know me and to be curious about people too. it hurts more not to.
