Recently, I received an invitation. I wanted to go to the event, but there were a lot of variables that could prevent my attending the scariest being predictions of harsh winter weather. It was an event that would cost the host a lot, money down the drain if folks reneged at the last minute. So, I opted out.
Initially, I felt kind of stupid opting out because of reasons that included only predictions. Then it snowed. It snowed in mid-November. Snow hasn’t happened before in Arkansas this early in my memory! Maybe the predictions are right!
When did you opt out of something you wanted to attend but was not right for you? How did declining make you feel?
