It can be daunting when you have to go somewhere or attend something where no-one knows you. Even when you’ve met some people before, it can still be daunting going into the unknown, because there’s few who know you.
So when we attend something for months or years, it should be reassuring and comforting to know that the others there know you, and know you by your name…or so I thought!
Just a few days ago, while attending something I’ve been part of for many years, I was twice called the wrong name, and when I spoke to someone else, was completely ignored.
How can that be? How can people not even remember my name? Am I invisible? …all questions which went through my mind.
Maybe I need to wear an id badge all the time, or speak louder so people remember who I am and actually hear what I’ve got to say!
