Most people are vastly more concerned with themselves than they are with you, so don’t worry about making a mistake.
They’re not judging.
And if they are, it doesn’t matter because you shouldn’t care about that kind of person’s opinion.
Your anxious ticks aren’t anywhere as noticeable as you think they are.
Stop overthinking and trying to be perfect. If you’re kind, curious, and try to be good listener, you’re going to be fine. You don’t always need to say the right thing.
In fact, you’ll eventually make a mistake. It’s unavoidable.
Our mistakes make us human, and they make us more relatable.
Embrace the imperfection, and in the inevitable moments they arise, just apologize, make a mental note, and move on.
There’s no point wallowing in shame.
Sincerely, just be yourself, it’ll be all right.
