@kehlani: understanding grief and death has been a journey. i’ve gained a lot of angels in my life but the last year has showed me that even after people have passed on, if i choose to, i can have an even closer relationship. i thank my angels, my guides, all those who walk with me for allowing me to see them, feel them, hear them in full. i honor you in all i do. this is my offering. enjoy 🕯⏳🦋🌊🛤⏳ i love you @popwansel 🕊

Socializing is difficult, especially when you’re naturally kind of awkward. One thing that might help is answering questions with sentences instead of words. If someone asks, “do you live nearby?” Instead of yes/yes, I do, try “yes, I live just around the corner, it’s like a five-minute walk” or “no, I live further up north, so the travel’s a pain as well”. You can even add a question, like “what about you?” and switch up the formulation if it sounds too repetitive after a while: “do you live nearby (as well)?”
I’m someone who’s super awkward with speaking (and pretty anxious about it due to a speech impediment) but lengthening answers from words to sentences (including something small like my opinion) + asking questions has already made conversations flow so much easier. Especially when I talk before I take too long mulling over my words.
Nobody overthinks what you said in a conversation: they’re too busy worrying about their own words and what impression they left on you. Instead of trying to view your end of the conversation through someone else’s eyes, circle it back to yourself: What do you want to say? What do you want them to know? What are your thoughts and have you allowed yourself to share them? Whatever it is you have to say, it’s worth saying out loud.

@dustinliu_: Some BTS shots from the new @kehlani music video "Altar"! Was too shy to say anything to Kehlani, but she seemed super nice, down-to-earth, and hardworking. Check out the song, it's beautiful! Thanks to @evachedda for the invite 🙏
