The internet feels to me like highschool where each group is already established. Each group thinks they are the cool kids and have some exculsivity. It feels to me like I need to already know someone in a group to have some validation and a chance to get it. I don't know anyone in any tech groups. I'm not trying to critizice, just painting a picture of how it feels to me.
I do it all the time, and as much as possible. You never know where the relationship may lead. The worst thing that can happen is that someone may say "no." If you are generally interested in other people, and you genuinely think you may have something of value to offer others, then it's easy. The feeling of "potential rejection" is 100% in your head.
@rowemore Aah yes of course. I am just stuck in this spiral of whether I even have something to offer, you know? I am simply curious about their work and what they do. I am not sure people these days have the mental capacity to talk to strangers.
Everyday! I read it recently that, everyone is motivated by one of two things- To make a gain OR avoid a pain. And it is always better to be a human and support both!
Say Hello to whom so ever you feel to connect with, explore new people, experience new things, make new mistakes, learn new things, grow, grow and grow... Everyday is a new day. And always remember there is always a first time for everything. Just live in the moment!
