Happy Fun Friday everyone! Today’s fun little gem is a subtle reminder that our egos can often get in the way of the things we do. If we are not hungry for attention, then we are worried that we are being scrutinized by the people around us: somehow, we think that the whole world is watching, people at work, at home, at grocery stores; everyone just watching our every move, judging us, evaluating us.
“What’s he eating? Ew why is he doing that?”
“Why is she wearing that?”
“What an ugly shirt.”
“What’s wrong with her?”
“I can’t believe they failed! Haha!”
And so on. But the reality is….that no one is watching. No one is keeping track of our failures…except for us.
When we meet new people, they don’t know us. They don’t know our story. But they know theirs, and they’re probably worried that their lifetime of failures (rather than their successes) is shining through. We are all so lost in our own minds, with the worries of life around us that most people are too busy worrying about themselves to worry about you. In this peculiar way, we are all alone, together. In this way, the only person who knows everything about us, is ourselves.
So the next time you are out in public and you worry that the gaze of the world is upon you, and that the world knows every little failure…remember this:
