Food for Thought: Thoughts on Being Left Out

I saw this on Facebook... And this is a whole Food-or-Thought post within itself.



Excellent.

People don't understand me when I say "I only deal with people I am supposed to be dealing with. And I only want people who are supposed to like me to like me."

That post explains it in a nutshell. 

My takeaway lesson here, though:

 I must temper my desires with discernment and a realization of my own self worth.

I don't even think that warrants any further comment from me.


Amen.

  4. I am an only child, a loner a partial introvert. I used feel some kinda way about being left out. I enjoy my aloneness an love being with select others who I pick not who picks me.

  5. Going through this very thing at work... It used to bother me know I just pull out headbuds and listen to some online podcast. I sat back one and realized that the group was going no where fast all the did was gossip about the next person and end up in HR time and time again.

  6. So perfect. I've never been one to want to be "part of the crowd".

  7. I saw this on Facebook too. We obviously have some friends in common. :)

    I like ...fighting for a position on a team that God doesn't want you on...

    I am not going to lie...I like being part of the crowd but as I have gotten older, I feel much better about not being in the crowd, part of the group. I am like...cool, now I can do X with no worries!

    this is a great post.

  9. I love this. I remember being in high school and never feeling a part of the crowd. In college, it was more of the same but I didn't care much because I focused on things outside of school. It rears it's ugly head every once in a while. It did this past school year being new and all but trust me it was for the best! I wasn't lumped in the the negative people and was judged on my own merit.

  10. I used feel bad about being left out too. Well into my 30's. Then I learned better. God knows exactly what (who) I need in my life.
