My mom talked in her sleep a lot when I was in high school. I could usually hold an entire conversation with her while she was sleeping.

Once I heard her mumble, “I know everything.”

I told her she didn’t know algebra, and she assured me she did.

So I asked, “What’s a polynomial?”

And with the authority of a thousand professors, she stated, “It’s when there’s no toy in your Happy Meal.”

No one wants to be the person who is made fun of for caring too much about something, who treats in earnest a situation that everyone else considers absurd. Even in personal relationships, feeling too heavily invested while simultaneously understanding that the other person couldn’t be more detached is one of the most profound feelings of embarrassment we can experience. Because it isn’t simply the embarrassment of making a mistake or a poor choice, it’s a shame over the kind of human being you are and how you see the world around you. To be shamed for your sincerity is to be reminded that you are dependent on something which is not dependent on you — that you are, once again, vulnerable.
“I Will Always Care Too Much”, Chelsea Fagan (via neonclues)
