I personally believe it’s good to be detached sometimes. Most of the time, that’s the only way I can get anything done. For some, that’s the best way to stay safe. Regardless of the reason, don’t be afraid to pass on the next invite, for fear of missing out or losing “a friend”. If you don’t feel right about doing something, it’s probably not a good idea. Your true friends will understand your reasoning. They aren’t going anywhere. Don’t shy away from being different.
I’m proud to be an occasional outlier.
