Today I am going to be transparent and reveal something a little personal. I struggle with meeting new people and making new friends. Some of it may be my introverted personality that enables me to reveal the fun, quirky side to others. Overall, I know the main reason is that I have a big fear of rejection. There is nothing more terrifying than putting myself out there (all of me, no sugar coating) and being completely rejected by someone. It bites. Without going into too much detail I attempted to put my guard down and start a new relationship last week. Unfortunately my efforts were unrewarded, I was embarrassed and a little confused. Especially because the other party initiated the encounter so I guess I misunderstood their intentions and assumed they wanted to be friends. Needless to say I am kind of glad this happened. Now I feel stronger and have a newfound appreciation for the friends and family who really care about me. Sometimes you have to go through hard times to get a clearer perspective on things.
