On Knowing Yourself and Why It Matters



When the bright red bubble of happiness popped up on my Facebook notifications, I eagerly clicked. Join my event, it urged! Such and such for sale, come over for appetizers and shopping.

I immediately clicked “Can’t Go.” It wasn’t because it was sales. Being in business myself, I appreciate these kinds events. I’ve put on these kinds of events.

It was the thought of entering a home I’d never been to and mingling with people I didn’t know. I knew it wasn’t my comfort zone. Nope. Not going.

Until my classic overthinking kicked in: It would be nice to get out of the house, converse with other moms, and put responsibilities aside for a couple of hours. If nothing else, I could catch up with the few ladies I did know. Maybe I’d even enjoy meeting new people!

  1. Similarly to you, I have felt a bit anxious about going to events and meeting new people. It’s about being in our comfort zone and when we step out of that zone, we can push the zone further. Its also about how much exposure we have to these experiences. When I was in my twenties, I was determined to become an extrovert and made myself meet new people every day. It became easy. However many years since then, I haven’t practiced and my zone shrunk again.
