Lesson | It’s a Privilege to Experience Me | Note 442
Have you ever felt slighted because you did not get invited to something?
I remember not feeling so great when I realized I was missing invites. What do I mean by missing invites? People I used to hang out with suddenly stopped asking me to attend events. It’s happened more times than I care to recall. So-called friends stopped asking me to hang out. I’ll admit, I felt a type of way at first. Then I asked myself why.
Sometimes friendships fizzle. It’s okay. Some people are around for a season or a reason.
Another culprit could be that I don’t do well with nighttime events. And when I look back at many of my friendships that have fizzled out, those people tried. They invited me to things, but I just never showed up.
I have let many opportunities escape me, including potential clients. Why? I couldn’t get myself together to go out, meet up, network, and close the deal.
I’m a good person. I’m a good friend. I’m just not the person who does well with nighttime events unless I’m already out, and that’s okay.
Don’t beat yourself up for not being something or someone you don’t care to be.
Sometimes you hear something, and it just speaks to you. I jumped on Christina “Chris Miss” Bright’s Instagram live just in time to listen to her share some prolific words about being authentic to who you are and not worrying about people who aren’t interested in you. I will remember and speak these words. As she said, “it’s a privilege to experience me.”
