Have you ever answered, “It was nice to be seen” to someone’s statement, “It was nice to see you“?
It’s a witty retort by which we may be saying that we are happy to be alive and present. However, the response may leave someone feeling a little uncomfortable, wondering if we were happy to see them too, or if the interaction was simply all about us. I only bring it up because we can be so occupied with ourselves that it leaves no room for someone else. Ever wonder why it is so difficult to remember a person’s name after we’ve just been introduced?
We remember what we focus on. We focus on what’s important to us.
It’s a small thing, but it is very nice to be seen.
