YOUR LIFE A-Z: INTERACTIVE
ALONE, IN A DIVERSE GROUP, DIFFERENT, BE INTERACTIVE
INTERACTIVE is at least a two-person interchange of activity, communication, and being interdependent with each other. Shy people who are generally introverts by nature have a more difficult time being INTERACTIVE with others. Sometimes being INTERACTIVE can be almost physically painful for introverts. However, the joy that comes through being interactive is a true benefit to a lifestyle of joy and contentment. Today, take an inventory of your INTERACTIVE style. Who do you gravitate to at work? Where do you seek out for lunch? When do you choose to be with people and when do you prefer to be alone? How do you take care of yourself when you have to be INTERACTIVE with bosses, negative people, and people that distress you? Life sometimes forces us into INTERACTIVE situations in order to help us develop a sense of positive self-esteem by challenging us with difficult circumstances and situations. Each time we have to Handle something like that is hard for us, we won’t to evaluate it from the perspective, “how well did I Handle that INTERACTION?” By focusing on what we did right we are able to add positive emotional muscle to our self-esteem. Being INTERACTIVE will bring us more joy than disappointments. Being INTERACTIVE will give us opportunities that we miss by staying in the shadows of life. Let yourself practice INTERACTIVE connections today with new people at work, the grocery store, a different parent at a soccer game. Broaden you life with INTERACTIVE communication.
