We hide in corners…

A lot of people hide in corners. Scared people. Skeptics. Nervous people. Introverts. 

And most importantly, freshmen college students.

See the people hiding in the corners? They want to be known too. They want to be loved too. They’re not in a corner because they want to be but because they don’t know where else to go.

I sat in the corner of the cafeteria the other day simply because I needed to get some work done… and there was nobody else to sit with. A girl sat at the table beside me. She was clearly alone. And clearly a freshman. 

I wanted to continue working, but I knew I should talk to her, invite her to sit with me. What I thought would be a 30-minute meal by myself turned into 2 1/2 hours of conversation. 

And it was so worth it.

    I enjoy your posts. The way you love people and think about others, not just yourself. The way you realize what things are really important. It takes courage to think about others, and I love the way you do that. You are a shining example!

      Thanks Beth! It definitely hasn’t always been easy to think about others – especially as a college student. I’ll be releasing a summer recap series soon, and one of the posts will definitely be talking about the struggle between being selfish (and taking time to recoup) and being selfless as a missionary.
