#22 You had to be there
I was telling a group of friends about a funny event that happened with a different group of friends. Only the story wasn’t funny when the words came out of my mouth. So I tried to tell it in a different way…but all I got were blank stares from their faces.
This feeling sucks.
You try to pry open the floodgates to something that you thought was great in your life and nobody cares. I mean, they didn’t even pretend they cared!
So I had to finish with, “well, I guess you had to be there.” I know it was funny…I was there…but I couldn’t get them to feel what I felt.
So the lesson I’m taking away from this uncomfortable situation is to enjoy the good feelings when you get them, because they are hard to duplicate.
“If emotion can create a physical action, then duplicating the physical action can re-create the emotion.”
