I can’t hold a conversation for long,
But I can listen to someone talk for hours.
I can’t drive,
But I can find my way around new places quite easily.
I can’t swim,
But I can stay afloat during stressful times and more importantly, not drown in self-pity.
I can’t dance,
But I can make others dance to my tunes if the situation demands so.
I can’t sing,
But I know the lyrics of the least popular and unknown songs.
I can’t bake,
But I know the best places and home bakers who can satiate my sweet tooth.
I recently interacted with friends and followers on social media (Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp) where I asked everyone their age and what they can’t do. It began with my own confession,
“I’m 32, and I can’t hold a conversation for more than 5 minutes.”
It led to a surprisingly cathartic experience where people confessed their hearts out. Maybe it will help you feel better too.
Thank you for reading.
