Self worth or Ego?

Meaning of life and that stuff / Self acceptance

I was at a meeting the other day and I went along with the attitude of wanting to get involved. I was taken aback by the chair of the meeting – he couldn’t seem to notice I was there. I have grappled with this and wondered whether I was having an issue with my ego (wanting to be noticed etc) and I felt quite annoyed.

I offered to take on a significant and time-consuming role for the group (setting up and administering a new Facebook Group) but I still felt invisible to our group leader. I found the image below and it was a good reminder to me that my ability doesn’t depend on someone else being able to see it.

Self Worth

  1. Sounds like he had the ego issue Lorraine! We all want to be validated. Its a basic human need. When the other person is wrapped up in his own agenda and unable to connect to others, then it is an ego issue.

    Sometimes I put it down to my wearing an invisibility cloak!! I do like your quote though, it is a reminder not to put yourself down when someone else can’t/won’t/doesn’t see you.
