Day 10891

During the past months I perceived myself as a cool dude. Probably because my circumstances made it easy to think of myself as a cool dude.
The circumstances have changed, and I am faced with very mundane — but important — issues that I have managed to avoid till now. All of a sudden I realize what a wuss I am, just because I’m so afraid of what other people — strangers even — might think of me when confronting them with unpleasant news, even if the welfare of everyone involved depends on it.
At some point I have learned how to be a wuss. It’s time to learn how to be a man.
