Just an idea I'm toying around with or should I say, keeps popping into my head. Let me know what you think.

Teach Me

“Will you teach me?”
“Teach you what?”
“How to be comfortable around others.”
You stare at him a minute, realizing what it took for him to admit and ask that question.
“It isn’t something you teach or learn, it isn’t a skill; it’s a person. You’re either comfortable with who they are or you aren’t. If you aren’t, then I guess you fake it.”
“I’m good at that.”
“You're good at faking being comfortable?”
He nods. “We're taught to always ‘be on’, be brilliant and in command of those around us. I make friends really easy, I’m just not always comfortable being myself with most of them.”
“Are YOU comfortable with yourself?”
“Yes. I like who I am, who I’ve become, I've worked hard at it. I feel good about what I want to continue doing in my life.”
“Then what makes you uncomfortable?”
“Talking. Like this… opening up about my feelings, my past. I’ve been through a lot, I think people think I’m really strong…”
“But even the strong need someone to lean on.”
He looks you in the eyes and smiles, “Yeah”.

This is gonna be interesting. I know a few of our boys that need this help. Too much time spent "on" making them forget how to easily just be who they are.
