If you wonder if you are in the club, you are not.
Ever have that feeling that you’re just not “getting it?” Boy, I do sometimes. I’d thought that when I became an adult I’d have access to “The Rules” and I’d never feel awkward again. The truth of course, is that age is no guarantee of “knowing” or “fitting in.” If there are any rules to dealing with new and awkward situations, though, this is it: “If you have to ask, you aren’t.” In those situations, just be yourself. You might stumble, you might even look foolish, but at least you won’t do it pretending to be something that you’re not.
