Have you ever felt alone in crowded room of people? On Friday, I went to a wedding reception where I felt uncomfortable because I felt quite alone, out of place, and just wished there would be someone there who would come talk to me. Normally, I'm a pretty outgoing person and can easily hold a conversation with just anybody, but awkward times do arise. I didn't know anyone enough to wheel up to them and just start chatting. Oh how I hoped someone would come talk to me.
Luckily, someone did come and made me feel less awkward and that it mattered that I was there. I was so glad. After some time, more and more people came to talk to me. The next thing I knew, I had been there for three and a half hours!
Anyways, I just want to thank those who care about me, and let them know that I care about them, too. I also hope that each and everyone of us will be mindful of our surroundings, and how we can positively affect people by the simple things we do--especially for those who seem to be having a hard time adjusting and may need our help. We can all be a friend and lend a hand. People who made an effort to come talk to me made a huge difference in my time there. I had a great time. THANK YOU!!!
