Ever meet anyone like this?
I empathise with Maroon Bun – it certainly doesn’t feel nice to be left out or uninvited, but perhaps there’s a reason for that?
Complaining that no one invites you to things is basically blaming others for your unpopularity or lack of visibility. If it’s always someone else’s fault, then perhaps it’s time to do some self-reflection.
If nobody invites you to things…maybe you’re just not that fun to be around?
And if you’re going to fish for invites, at least try to be tactful about it?
And heck, if no one invites you to things, then just organise your own things!
In this part of the world, there’s a popular phrase called “bojio”, which basically means “no invite?”.
Considering how viral the phrase is, I imagine a lot of people suffer from bojio syndrome and some form of FOMO.
I wonder if it’s as prevalent of an issue in other parts of the world…
