Dread of Being Declined
When socialising, you must try to stave off the Dread of Being Declined. Such dread produces feelings of vacancy, aloneness, and reclusiveness. They sap you of the favourable desire to connect with other people and push you out of alignment with affection. Is there anything inherently grievous about walking up to a different individual and stating, “Hello, my name is Joe. You look like somebody whom I have not met previously. What is your name?” No, there’s not.
At the start of the conversation the other individual might indeed react like you’re attempting to sell them something. However, they’ll frequently give you the benefit of the doubt and let the conversation carry on. The worst case scenario is that nothing occurs.
Meeting New People
The most beneficial case is that you make a fascinating fresh life acquaintance. How many times can you take chances on something like that? Whenever you open your heart and communicate with affection, you’re sure to meet other people who respond in a similar way.
The irony in this matter is that when you’re feeling disconnected from something, connecting with individuals is the cure. If you spend more time with favourable, cheerful, interesting individuals, it’s unlikely that you’ll be feeling blue in the first place.
Isolating Yourself Doesn’t Benefit You
Really, your disconnection from others is a sign that you have unplugged from the most beneficial parts of yourself.
You’re a worthy individual. Once you hold back from connecting due to the dread of rejection, you rob others of the opportunity to get to know you. Lots of people would love the chance to touch base with you. They want somebody to comprehend them, somebody who may remind them that they aren’t alone.
When you link up with people, you’re giving them precisely what they wish. Extending socially does call for some small risk. However, in the long-run the advantages are so tremendous that the only way to bomb at it is to refuse to try.
