Do you ever feel invisible? I know I do. It’s a lonely feeling so sometimes I pretend invisibility is my superpower.
The place I feel most invisible is on social media. It’s so easy to watch the apparent success of popular people on social media and wonder why no one ever responds or interacts with you.
That’s why I’ve made a habit of trying to call people by name on social media. I want them to feel noticed and appreciated. I want them to feel visible.
I greet new contacts by name and look for ways to interact with their content. I say something about their bio or image. I respond to their posts or share their content.
Sometimes I go through part of my followers and send them a blessing and a photo with a Bible verse on it. Occasionally I ask people how I can pray for them.
Instead of feeling invisible, I’ve decided to help other people feel visible. In return, I get a much greater blessing. The best remedy for feeling invisible is to help others overcome the same feeling.
Lord, I pray for the invisible ones among us. Give them the courage to reach out to others. Help them know they are not invisible to You. You see them. Help us to see them, too. Give us eyes to see and hearts to reach out so others will no longer feel invisible.
Another way to overcome feeling invisible and lonely is to become best friends with God.
