In a discussion I started in MyLot, with title Will you be hurt when you are not invited to a party?, I discovered that many people still get hurt or feel bad when someone close forgot to include them in the guests list.
I have to admit that there was a point in my life where I ask myself why I was not invited to a party by a known friend or an acquaintance. I could not remember if I was that hurt but the question lingered – ‘Why?’. Being insecure, I used to think that it has something to do with me; that people do not like me, that I fall short of their expectations, or that I do not belong. It is this desire to belong that probably made me feel bad or anxious before.
But as I have written in the discussion, there are reasons why one is not invited to a party:
- the party is exclusive
- the budget is limited
- you would not want to know the other reasons
If there are other reasons, I really would like to know because I believe they are all summarized in the three (3) things I have listed. What do you think?
