I engage in self-deprecating humor. I like to put people at ease by making fun of myself… But I’m not sure exactly how well it works. It seemed to work well when I lived outside the US, but for some reason, I keep finding myself involved with people here who take advantage of me. I’m fine putting myself down, but when someone else feeds off that, and then joins it, that just not cool.
Anyway, so I think I need a different approach. I’m still not entirely sure how to pull it off, but one of the things I want to work on this year is forming relationships with other people.
My uncle shared this on Facebook a couple of months ago, and I finally watched it this morning.
