It is all so trivial and at the end of the day, it truly doesn’t matter BUT I wanted to write about it because inclusion or exclusion is something we all experience – at every age, at every stage of life, in so many different circumstances. The best we all can do is to try and be mindful about it. Mindful both of how we may make others feel when leaving them out, even unintentionally, and mindful of how we internalize our feelings about being left out. Mindful that different people are sensitive to different things and might not always feel the way you do, or the way you meant to portray something.
