What do you do when you meet someone new, share a bit about your projects, and they react negatively or seem uninterested? Do you take it personally, or could their reaction just be a sign that they’re not right for you?
I had two experiences over the last week that got me thinking about the connections we make by opening up about our passions.
Another thing occurred to me after making this video. It’s important not to let other people’s reactions harden you to the point where you stop allowing yourself to open up. Imagine if I had taken situation #1, projected that out onto the rest of the world, and assumed that the second woman was going to react the same way as the first did. I would have minimized my passion for what I do, and we never would have connected on that deeper level.
Stay vulnerable and lead with your heart. It is the only way to feel joy.
How do you introduce yourself to new people, and has your approach changed since becoming more comfortable with your multipotentiality?
