My Mother, the Jokester

My mother was not well-tuned to other people.

It’s only in my adulthood that I’ve realized it wasn’t being selfish or narcissist that made her that way. Mom could be quite kind and thoughtful. Rather, it was the deep rooted shyness she felt from growing up in a family where she was a tad uneasy, feeling as if she didn’t quite fit in.
