The invisible man
Have you ever felt invisible? I never really felt like that until recently. It would be funny if it weren't so sad. Everywhere I have ever worked, I was a resource man. People looked to me to help and I gladly did. I helped in areas that weren't in my confort zone or job description because I am a team oriented guy. I have always been respected and liked. I don't feel that way anymore. There are a few exceptions: (My family, Angela, Whitney, Soupie, John, Neil, Melanie, Jason, Rob, Joe, Todd, Carla and the Harbins & the storm!). Honestly, I feel invisible. Some people don't think I can do anything. They have never allowed me to try. They don't even ask. I have 2 post-graduate degrees and 4 years real business experience and teaching/coaching. Plus over 14 years of ministry experience. But I'm invisible. I have been overlooked and ignored. I'm not one draw attention to my accomplishments so that leads to my invisiblity in the cesspool of dysfunction. I won't go into details but it stinks.
