should I be afraid?

Postby RenassanceMan1 » Thu Nov 03, 2016 1:59 pm

I'm a concerned renascence center employeee and I've seen people walking around dressed as various characters. Is there any thing I should keep in mind when approaching or attempting to communicate with the participants? Some can be quite scary and down right intimidating.

Hi,

I had the same feeling before. Employees, participants, and some people intimidate me with their costumes and attires. I sometimes stayed in the corner and just watch people. I'm not so confident to interact with them.

Yes, It is scary for the first time but if you keep attending the conventions and meetings you'll probably gonna get used to it.

dementor2017 is actually right you just need to have a self-confidence and always bear in mind the reason why you'll attend conventions and meetings. You also need to look forward the things that you're going to learn after the conventions or meetings.

Like I've said I experienced this before, It's awkward for the first time, it's intimidating, it's a whole lot of emotions and you just want to go home and get away from there, and I did, but just think about it. You go to the event for a reason like you want to learn something new, have some fun, and make some friends but you can't because you don't have self-confidence. I tried searching and looking for answers to boost my self-esteem, my self-confidence or let's call it ego. I went to different sites and forums just to get an answer for my self-problems. I ran to this site https://ponbee.com/how-to-boost-self-esteem/ and read it a couple of times, I tell you it's hard when you start changing and boosting your self-esteem but it's worth it. Now I attend almost every event, conventions, anime cosplays, and meetings.
