ARE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE AT SOCIAL GATHERINGS? GOOD!
There are all kinds of social gatherings we attend. We have holidays and gatherings, and getting-together. And it’s with all these people that we don’t maybe know, they could be family member’s, but they could be friends of friends and we don’t know them. And guess what? That’s very uncomfortable and not very “comfortably” uncomfortable. No, it’s very uncomfortable.
You may have to do these things anyway because you don’t want to disappoint your family and friends. I say if you are in a social gathering, “buck up”, as my parents used to say, and get used to the situation and the more uncomfortable you feel, the easier it’s going to get.
The more uncomfortable you feel, the more that you are going to get out of it. Seriously, it is so true. I was thrust into an uncomfortable situation just the other night and I had to do this one thing and I think you do, too. And it’s very important that you just go with it.
Go up to people, introduce yourself, get them to talk about themselves, ask them questions about themselves. That’s how you get the attention off of you and maybe you’ll feel more at ease if you do that.
Yes. I suggest that you don’t back away from any situation where you might meet people that you could have partnerships with or do business with or make great friendships with.
