One of the observations I’ve made, especially over the last few weeks, is how the language you use can be a massive betrayal of your current situation and the situation you are used to finding yourself in. When meeting new people and telling stories about my life, most of which have happened in the last 9 years, I find myself using a word which no longer applies “We”. It’s such a small word but it carries with it an understanding that you are part of a collective. The used of the term “we” invites a logical question of “who is we”. When you now realise that that word no longer applies to you or your current situation it is embarrassing to have to explain your use.
