Too Familiar

I have been too familiar with people.  My sense of humor can be insensitive and off-putting.  I do hug and kiss people casually, women and men.  I have done it all my life.  It's who I've been since I can remember.  In my mind, I've never crossed the line with anyone, but I didn't realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn.  There are generational and cultural shifts that I just didn't fully appreciate, and I should have.  No excuses.
