“The Embarrassment of Existence” / Memorable Fancies #1656

[“To exist is always a somewhat embarrassing situation.” – Kierkegaard]

I’m looking around nervously, as if I’d entered a restaurant naked where everyone else was fully clothed. There are people here who exist, and they don’t seem to be embarrassed by it at all. They’re drinking coffee at the next table, relaxed and chatting. I’m reassured, somewhat, since no one has pointed at me and laughed or screamed.

But it’s difficult for me to accept that other people exist … or why.
