The Community Conundrum

Date Posted: January 20th, 2017, 9:30 pm
Want to help people! But also... terrified of new people... WHAT A PARADOX.

Author Notes

When you want to get involved with the community, but your social anxiety whispers in your ear," The community...is made up of...people."

This is exactly how I feel about some of my plans for this year. I WANT TO DO THAT but... people. D:

Wait, are we BOTH talking about volunteering without using the word? XD I realised it adds up and I don't use the v-word much because I start worrying I might jinx it...
@Oly-RRR: YES lol
Omg something I am struggling with the past two days again!
Yes, people are a scary unknown variable, but if you want to do it, don't let that scariness factor stop you. To use a weird swimming pool analogy, there are times to dip a toe in (which gives you the opportunity to back out) and there are times to just jump. It depends on how much it matters to you.
