There is something about the lack of self-trust that is very isolating. It holds hands with social media, where everyone is highlighting their amazing decisions. Don’t worry – most people don’t feel like they have it together.
Today keeps with a recent theme. It’s not going to be hard (physically taxing) but it’s going to be hard (emotionally).
Today, try to be as mobile as possible (bonus: you can get your steps in) and leave your phone somewhere else. As you walk meet everyone’s eyes. Don’t stress out – there won’t be as many as you think. Most people are looking down or at their phone. Do your best to meet people’s eyes and if you can – turn off RBF and turn on a pleasant vibe.
Feel those feelings. How does it feel to connect with strangers? How does it feel to connect with people you see everyday?
Extra bonus points if you do this on an elevator. People have 1,000,000 places to look other than your eyes on an elevator.
Let me know how it goes.
