What if we lingered a little while longer?
Awkward hands and dancing feet.
Eyes locked on another person or a piece of ourselves that aches to be seen.
What if we stayed in the discomfort, sat in hard conversations or with strange feelings to see what would happen next?
What if lingering made the difference in a lasting friendship or moving to the other side of judgement and fear?
What if lingering uncovered a place inside only reachable through the valleys?
Linger, then listen, then act.
