EPM Tip: Show up to parties

Want to make someone’s day? Show up to their party.

Even if you can only stay for 30 minutes.
Even if you have four other things to do that night.
Even if you are not close friends.
Even if you don’t feel like going out.

Inviting people to a party is risky, because if folks don't show up, it feels like being rejected. When you show up to a party, say hi, and eat some food, you are being kind at a time when it matters a whole lot.
