Let's face it: no one likes being excluded. We all long to feel secure in the knowledge that we are liked and appreciated, that we belong in our communities, that people want us around.
Granted, sometimes you're just not in the mood to socialize. Maybe you want to focus on studying, or you need some time to recharge away from people. Sometimes you just don't feel like tagging along with the group. But that doesn't mean you don't want to at least be invited.
In the latest This Week Inside My Body, Karla Monterrosa knows just how you feel.
