Most humans share the same social anxieties about showing up and in a place where you are the stranger, where you are unknown.
From an evolutionary perspective, strangers and strange places represent danger.
The opposite is also true. Strangers are also an opportunity, to learn, to connect and to make new connections, to create community that benefits everyone.
My experience tells me that what you find is what you seek. If you expect to find rejection and disinterest you’ll find it. Conversely, all I ever find are people who need me as much as I need them. That’s who I’m looking for.
The good news is it’s never been easier to get a conversation going, to convene a meeting and host an event and make a connection.
We’re waiting for you.
