It Ain’t Easy Putting Yourself Out There.

It Ain’t Easy Putting Yourself Out There.

We've all been there before - we put ourselves out there, and poured our hearts out, only to be met with the sound of crickets. It's tough, but it happens to the best of us. In this blog post, we'll explore how to deal with the feeling of being ignored or overlooked in a lighthearted way.

First and foremost, it's important to remember that not everyone is going to be interested in what we have to say. That doesn't mean that what we have to say isn't important, it just means that not everyone is our audience. It's like trying to sell snow to someone who lives in a tropical climate - it's just not going to happen.

Instead of feeling discouraged, we can use this as an opportunity to find our tribe - those who share similar interests and passions. We can find like-minded individuals by joining groups, attending events, or even starting a blog or social media page to connect with others.

Another thing to keep in mind is that sometimes people are just busy or distracted. It's not that they don't care about what we have to say, but rather they may be dealing with their own issues or responsibilities. So, don't take it personally if someone doesn't respond to your message or comment right away. They might just need some time to catch up.

And finally, remember that humor is a great way to diffuse any awkwardness or disappointment. Laughing at ourselves and our situations can help us see things in a new light and put things in perspective. So, if you're feeling down about being overlooked or ignored, try cracking a joke or making a silly meme about it. You might just find that it helps you feel better. One caveat to this, however, is that it’s a fine line to use humor to cope. If you’re one to use self-deprecating humor, this is for you. The more we practice a self-deprecating sense of humor, the more we tend to believe the lies we tell about ourselves. So, use humor and make light of challenging situations but always show love to yourself.

In conclusion, being vulnerable and putting ourselves out there can be tough, but it doesn't have to be a downer. By finding our tribe, understanding that people have their own priorities, and keeping a lighthearted attitude, we can navigate the ups and downs of being seen and heard. And who knows, maybe someday we'll be the ones making someone else feel seen and heard.
