Let’s Be Interesting

Today, I want to talk about something that’s…maybe a little bit of a sensitive subject. Being uninteresting, haha. Honestly though, being a boring person is tough. It’s like being stuck in a never-ending cycle of monotony. You feel like you have nothing interesting to say, and it’s hard to connect with other people. You might even feel like you’re not living life to the fullest. Have you ever felt this way?

I think it’s especially tough in today’s society where social media dominates our lives. Everyone seems to be living their best lives and meanwhile, you’re stuck at home, scrolling through your feed, feeling like you’re missing out on all the fun. The comparison game is real (sucky), isn’t it?

But here’s the thing, my friend, being a boring person isn’t a permanent condition. In fact, I’ve found it’s completely transitional and the great news is, you have the power to change it, at any given moment.

How, you ask? Well, you can start by exploring your interests and passions – things that truly spark joy. Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn a new language, try out pickleball, or join a CrossFit gym (haha). Whatever it is, just jump in and go for it. Discovering something new that you’re passionate about will give you tons of things to talk about and share (with anyone who’ll listen), and I guarantee that will make you feel more interesting immediately.

And since I’ve had several periods of this boringness in my life, I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to figure this out. Here’s what I’ve nailed down – to me, being an interesting person is all about taking a genuine interest in others, being (at least semi) knowledgeable about a variety of topics, having a great sense of humor (of course, haha), being open-minded and curious (and not afraid to ask questions), and of course being 100% yourself.

You don’t have to be the loudest or the most outgoing person in the room to be interesting either. I’ve found that it’s more about being genuine, authentic, and engaging. You don’t have to try to be someone you’re not in order to impress people. In fact, people can sense when you’re being fake or insincere, so my advice is to embrace those quirks, let them out, and be totally confident in who you are. When you’re authentic, people will be drawn to you and find you interesting just as you are. #win

While being a boring person royally sucks, it’s only a temporary condition. And thankfully we all have the power to break free anytime we want to. So, don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re in a boring phase right now, my friend. We’ve all been there. Being interesting is great, but it isn’t the only thing that matters anyway. I can assure you that you don’t have to be the life of the party all the time to make a difference in someone’s life. You just have to be yourself.
