leaving home or having guests to your house, it’s important to ensure
that you’re operating within an authorized identity.
Identity Apathy: Always remember:
it’s common practice to say “how are you”
as a greeting. Some people fail to understand that this
is a formality, and get the idea that they’ve been invited to have

for people to make assumptions about you before they know you, resulting
in a similar awkwardness for everyone involved: We actually have
