What does this mammoth say to you? How does it manage to stay balanced on the ball? How do the balloons help or hinder?

This poor creature has been doing its best to play along with the circus and put on a good show, but it can only pretend for so long. The same is true for me: I make great efforts to ensure others feel comfortable around me, and sometimes I end up resenting how uncomfortable I make myself in the process.

In what ways are you stuck doing something you don’t want to do? Can you name the mammoth in your room?
