Im a really shy and nervouse person and sometimes I just want to break out of that habit but I can't. So I need some advice from anyone.
I go to this community college and there's different ethnicities and cultures. I always see different people but this semester I saw this girl with a purse or bag of the Japanese movie My Neighbor Totoro. Its an amazing movie and well I couldn't even speak up and at least say that I know who Totoro is.
And just a couple of minutes ago I saw this girl with a picture of this handsome man clipped to her backpack, and I couldn't even say, "I know or also love GD"
So if you have any advice please tell me. I need to learn to SPEAK UP and be able to say that I ALSO LOVE KPOP.
Lot's of KPOP groups out in this world!!!
First of all, don't second think yourself! Don't think of it as something you're later going to be embarrassed about. When you see her, take a deep breathe and go for it! It's always hard to approach people because you never know how they will react, but don't be too freaky lol For example, if your passing next to her make eye contact and smile then be like "hey, this might seem weird but I've seen that you like kpop and are into Japanese movies! " That's a great conversation starter. From there on that same interest will keep you guys talking. Expecially if you guys have the same bias!! ;D Good Luck! Let me know how it goes! Fighting!!
@IlseJimenez I'm shy too, but kpop has really pulled me out of my shell. Go out there and say hi. If she has something kpop on, then she probably expects people to say something. Start by saying something like "I like your bag." or "You like GD too?" People always ask me what drama my Boys Over Flowers necklace is from and it's not wired at all. I'm most comfortable around my kpop friends and I can tell them anything. I just started college and I didn't have any kpoppers, so I was kind of depressed. So I had to start all over, now I have 3 new kpop friends. You have to just do it. I promise most kpoppers don't bite! 😉 Fighting!
If you are to shy to speak up make sure that u do something so people talk to u first, like for example, im pretty sure that is u take something that had GD on it the girl that had GD on her backpack woulf say something, im shy too so i undrrstand and thats whats i would do. Probably not the best advice but I hope i helped 😙
I don't know what advice I can offer but I will say this. As someone who is looking towards the last part of life I have one and only one regret. I now regret all the times I allowed fear either real or imagined to control me. As scary and uncomfortable as taking the chance is there is rarely a second one. Walk out your door tomorrow and be free. Put fear away ( unless there are weapons involved then run or fight). No matter what the outcome or possible embarrassment you will not regret trying. Best of luck and good wishes.
@AnnahiZaragoza Thanks!! I will sure practice this.
