I doubt they think that, but as a total klutz for my entire life, who bungles things constantly, all I can say is you gotta learn to laugh at yourself. Laugh it all off. They probably don’t care about your mistakes- they’re making their own all the time too and being awkward also. Just own it.
Being a klutz, being kind of sarcastic and funny about me has made me funnier. My kids call being a klutz in anyway “momming it.” I wear that badge proudly, maybe because I gave up trying to be less me long ago. I appear graceful to many, until you spend any significant time with me. I have thrown dinner in my kids laps by accident, instead of gently place the plate on the table in front of them. This is just who I am. I could feel bad about it, but why? (No children were harmed.)
Anyway, as Kate said, “that’s showbiz, baby.” Own your awkwardness and make it funny if you want, but I swear, no one notices as much as you do.
