We’ve all been there. That uncomfortable, sometimes even threatening place, where we feel insignificant, insecure and downright invisible. Maybe it’s an interview for a job where you feel underqualified. Maybe it’s as innocuous as a party where you don’t know a soul and everyone else looks like they stepped off Page 3 of the local daily.
I’m calling it the “grasshopper syndrome” – a phrase inspired from way, way back. Think the Old Testament.
