Write about things that entertain. Do things that are useful. Make it about me.
Let me talk about myself. Let me tell you about my day. Care about me.
Make me feel like I belong. Make me feel like I matter. Let’s talk about sports.
Let’s talk about things I care about. Let’s talk about people. Let’s talk about other people’s problems.
These people aren’t doing things like we do. We aren’t those kinds of people.
Wow, they have a Rolex.
Let’s talk about how other people aren’t good enough.
Let’s talk about how they don’t measure up to our expectations of:
- Social normality
Have you seen any good movies lately?
Can you believe this weather?
What’s up with the younger generation? They’re so self-centered and misguided.
Things are so divided. Let’s not talk about race in America.
I don’t trust politicians.
I’m too busy.
Who even reads anymore?
Oh my gosh, I just remembered this embarrassing thing from like five years ago.
I try not to think about my regrets.
I hope these people accept me.
I wish people talked to me more.
Sometimes I feel like I don’t fit in.
I wish I had more faith.
I just wish they liked me for me.
Sometimes I feel like I’m not good enough.
I feel ashamed if I’m honest.
That person just overshared. That was totally inappropriate.
They were just way too close to my personal space.
I miss my childhood.
There’s nothing I can do about this anyway.
Can you believe what’s happening there?
