Fear 92 of 101: Meeting New People

with one comment

While this may not be a fear of some people, I am not a person who necessarily likes meeting new people simply because I’m not good at it. There are many reasons for this.

1) I always make a bad first impression. I am a little bit of an outspoken individual and can come off brash and as an asshole. So, knowing this about myself, I always try to be a little more reserved and observant the first few times the I meet people…so yeah…

2) I’m at that stage in my life where the scope of people that I’m around is pretty much constantly changing…so, I have to meet new people on regular occasion. For instance, I am being pretty quiet in a class that I’m in because I don’t really know any of the people in there…however, the majority of these people will never matter to me. And my path and those who do will diverge quickly.

3) I find most people to be either annoying, useless,  bearable, or likable (I categorize well in my mind). There are very few people that I click with automatically, and there are others that I’m okay with being around them…the rest, I could care less about. Having to meet people and find out that the majority of them fit into the first two categories usually makes me quite sad…but those few that make me have faith in humanity are good.

Overall, it’s an inevitability of life because we all move, and we all move on. But part of the romantic in me hopes that I can keep in touch with people even as I feel some of them slipping out of my fingers like sand in a sieve…Whatever shall be done? I answer we must try to carry on the best we can and meet people…even to our detriment…
