I’ve never been the type of person that would try to make plans in the last minute and also felt insecure asking for help, that was until last night. Last night I noticed that my son got a call from a young lady asking him to go to a movie, that was to begin in an hour. In an hour? Forget the thought of a woman calling to ask a man out that was strange enough but what truly was bizarre is that she asked at the last minute. How many Saturday’s nights did I stay alone in my house as a teen all because I was intimidated that it would look desperate if I called a friend in the last minute. I’d rather suffer the loneliness then feel I was desperate. Wow what a waste of time.
This young lady has inspired me to not only be less intimidated to ask people out for a social engagement but also ask people to get involved as well. I realize insecurities can make us afraid to engage others and then we suffer as whole. I for one am going to make a greater effort to fight these feelings so that I can not only truly enjoy the company of others but insure that we as as group can exceed the expectations others have of us.
