I might as well say this. You might need to hear it or, based on experience, you might already know. In a world where everybody is trying to be funny or colourful or unique or interesting or an individual – and I say this because I have been there. I went through the motions and the headspace, and tried to be a clown or an eccentric to people with the hope that they will tell stories about me somehow and therefore never be forgotten. So here goes, roughly at the one hundred word mark: It is perfectly okay to be boring. I say this, because it is not an ‘if’, but a ‘when’. There is a time for everything. There is a time to be the most fun person in someone’s life, and then there is a time to disappear into yourself and settle down. I also say this because it is also a test. Your friends. The people you are trying to please. If they witness you when you are boring and still want to hang out, you are doing better than most people. Fear not your boredom and go have fun on your own. Everyone, have a great day!
