Short Film on ‘Why Truly Sociable People Hate Parties’

From the smart cookies at The School of Life:

“Our age has a high esteem for parties. Yet some of us have a particular fear of them – which we’re made to feel very bad about, as if this was a sure sign of being an anti-social and unfriendly person. Far from it. As this film argues, truly sociable people tend to hate parties a lot.”

Words to live by:

“We build genuine connections when we dare to exchange thoughts that might leave us open to humiliation and judgment.”
