About

I’m Matt.

This is for you if you believe in passing it forward.

Imagine if aliens come to our planet and are wondering what we’re about. I’m cataloging my personal experiences with people to share a nice storybook about humanity.

I’ll attempt to write about 1000 awesome people. Wish me luck.

Check out my Past Approaches tab to see my progress.

In 2011, I wrote about my personal journey through 70 days of Rejection Therapy 1.

This gave me the courage to meet people in real life, whether that is initiating the conversation in real life or online.

What made me write this blog? Fear robbed me of being able to express myself during one of the most defining moments in my life. That’s the moment I realized that being courageous, even awkwardly, is infinitely better than regret.

I enjoyed reading your blog.  I have been sharing life-changing nutrition products with people, and I cannot believe how many rejections I go through every day.  I personally got off medications and disability, but people don't believe it is for them.  There is nothing like it, and it goes into your epigenome.  It brought so many miracles and gave hopes to people.  Rejections hurts, but I am here to give other people hope.  Your blog helped me.  Thanks.

Hey Matt (notice the friendly tone)... Great writing and I look forward to more of your postings! I'm easily 2.5 times older than you and wish I had your blog to guide me thru my anxious 20's. Even in my 50's I know I'm going to gain some great insight from your blog. Keep up the momentum and you'll shine well before hitting 3-0!

I love reading your blog ( found it thru TinyBuddha.com ). I'm a software developer, working out of my house. I've had problems with anxiety for years, but, with time, it has lessened. Most people you meet want to like you and want to be friendly. You will meet jerks along the way but thankfully they are few and far between. I try to treat everyone like I would like to be treated, realizing that some folks will never like me, but a lot of people do.

I found our blog via your TinyBuddha.com article. I have had social anxiety for a long time (at one point to the extreme of being housebound). I've learned to deal with it mostly, but I still avoid certain situations due to fear of rejection. You have inspired me to step outside of myself and try some of my own rejection therapy. I look forward to reading more of your posts. Thank you Matt.
