Sometimes I just want to smile at birds.

And I’d be afraid that people would see me smile at birds

and think me odd for smiling at birds.

But the moment I thought

if I want to smile at birds

I’m going to smile at birds

I lost the ability to be concerned

about what people assume.

A dirty truth is that

people will always assume.

Check your makeup in a car’s reflection?

You’re vain.

Reading a book on a train?

You’re pretending to be interesting.

On your phone?

You anti-social pariah, you.

The worst part about caring about assumptions

is that people thinking you’re weird for smiling

can stop you from smiling.
