I realized today that I’ve been doing this wrong. I’m a picky eater and I accept that. But I realized that I’ve been coming at this like it was a disease. I mean it’s embarrassing. I’ve had to tell people what I don’t like as to avoid awkward social situations. I’m sure that my “condition” has stepped on a few people’s toes.
“She really thinks the world revolves around her to ask her to change what we’re making for dinner.”
“Why can’t she just eat like everyone else?”
The thing is I try (sometimes). But it’s not a disease, it might even be fortuitous. I mean I don’t like widely liked foods; seafood, mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado, etc. This just means that there’s more for everyone else who’s plates end up with random bits and pieces of stuff I don’t eat. I think people should look at this in a better light. I’ll try to eat more foods and they should just eat what I can’t. There’s nothing wrong with being picky.
