New Situations

New Situations

New situations can be scary for many people. To step into a new bar, college hall, gym, music venue or school can be challenging. You are making a first impression, and a first impression is made within seconds. Don’t we all find it scary sometimes?
What if your look makes the bar slightly higher to step into a new space with new people? Yes, it might be slightly scarier, but this doens’t mean that you shouldn’t do it. Fear is something we should not live by, but we should overcome. The more you try and get yourself out there, the easier it will become. I recently started a new university program, and it is still something that challenges me, the first day and the first introductions to people. Do I overcompensate with being nice to overcome what they might think of my port wine stain? Yes, maybe.
But at the same time, because I’ve done it for so many times now, it becomes less of an issue. With experience the fear fades. People will look at you, people will think stuff, but don’t we all get that, despite the way we look?
