People who want to be seen can’t see you, likewise you can’t see others if you are focused on being seen. Have you been feeling irrelevant, invisible, or insignificant around certain people? It may be because you are merely part of their audience. Have you been having less meaningful interactions, noticing your friends are stepping back, or simply not connecting with others? It may be that you are too focused on being seen as opposed to participating. Become aware of the role you play and how it serves you and those around you. Sometimes an enhanced perspective is action enough. However, if you’re done with the show, whether it be from the stage or the audience, simply exit gracefully.
