I miss mine.
Spending time with his is awkward, since they’re so different from what I’m used to. Closed, isolating and I feel like the unwelcome newcomer. He tells me he doesn’t feel like he belongs, and they’re his family, so I guess I can’t expect any better. There are no parents to impress, as they’re both gone, but siblings and nieces seem just as intimidating.
I realize he may feel the same way when he meets mine, but I hope not. I would like to think they’re warm and kind and welcoming. Though, given the circumstances, I suppose anything is possible.
