Default All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go...!

Hi, I'm new...

Two days ago I experienced a very hurtful situation.

I learned that a co-worker was having a home welcoming party and everyone on our shift is invited, but not me. I feel very hurt.

When I approached my co-workers they made me feel as if it was all in my head and that it's not a big deal. How would you feel if you weren't invited?

I've always been a loner, shy and I'm easy going. I get along with everyone no problems...

I'm trying to forget about it, but it truly hurts knowing I'm not invited.

It does hurt when you are left out, perhaps they thought that being quiet you wouldn't enjoy the party.

Do they go out after work to the pub or for a meal, perhaps next time you could go with them. Start small and then work up.

Its hard when you have depression or when you are shy fitting in but from personal experience sometimes you have to try really hard.

I have problems fitting in as well but matbe another way is to find out which pubs they go to and just appear with one of your own friends make it look like you are on a pub crawl and this is just one more stop on the list.

I just have to ask. Is the title of your thread lyrics to the song Dead Man's Party? Or am I imaging things?
