It's tough when you feel left out. It happens to most all of us at
one time our another. It's happened to me and I imagine to
each of you at one time or another.
It's never a happy time and one tends to wonder
Is there something wrong with me?
It stings to be excluded. So what do you do to help yourself
get over the hurt?
I have learned that the behavior of kids on the playground does
not change all that much as kids become adults. We all want to
be included in all the games and all the parties. Sometimes we
are not. It does not have to diminish our own self worth.
Each of us have value. Just because one person does not like
you does not mean that no one does or will, if you give them
a chance. It does not mean that you have no value.
When you are excluded the best thing to do is to dry your
tears and move on. In the heat of the moment that is easier
said than done, yet that is all you can do. Give yourself a
short time to grieve over the slight and find another group
of friends. There are others who will gladly welcome you
into their circle. Trust me, they will.
