Hello, Stranger

I am totally the type of person that fidgets in elevators to avoid awkward silence. And unexpected eye contact makes me damn near pee my pants. But on the flip side, I’m a pretty outgoing and social person. And at work, I have no problem talking to new people and making light conversation. So why is it that in certain situations, I get so nervous of simply saying hello?

This New York Times article was a pretty cool read – Hello, Stranger. It addresses the behavioral norms that most people abide by and how breaking them could be the key to a more positive life. I’m diggin’ it. Go check it out.
