Being in a new environment can be very uncomfortable and awkward sometimes. You may not know what to say or what to do. It can be tough to be the one who reaches out and starts up a new conversation. It for sure can make you nervous.
And I’ve been there and currently am in one. Spending time in a new environment all by yourself is very intimidating. I am usually good after a while but the moments before that happens can be quite difficult and makes me act unlike myself. I am an outgoing person who loves meeting new people. But having the comfort of your friends being by your side or in the vicinity of you while you are making new acquaintances can surely help a lot. The nerves are nearly nonexistent and you don’t be as let down as one would if they were all by themselves.
But what could be the worst thing that happens? If you are in a new environment, you most likely don’t know a single person in the room. They don’t know who you are so I say to go for it. If you embarrass yourself, so what. They don’t know who you are anyways and if you don’t become friends with them their opinion shouldn’t matter.
It’s a very difficult thing to do. I completely understand that. It seems like such a simple task but taking your first step out of your comfort zone is scary. It’s getting over the hump and just going for it.
I always see what is at the end of the tunnel. I know I will be fine once I get more acquainted with my surroundings and those around me. I know I will be able to make friends. I know I will have a lot of fun in the future.
This goddamn fear. Please take it away from me. Take down this wall that is standing in front of me. It’s just in my way and I need it gone!
How can I continue on during this new part of my life when I can’t knock it down? Give me the courage…
I know I will be okay, I am positive of this.
Let’s knock down this wall.
