Last month I was playing and a black guy came with his ball. I decided I would look like an aspie if I just left so I kept shooting as if he wasn't there.
After 15 minutes he asked if I wanted to play one on one
>too beta to refuse
>play for about 30 minutes.
>He comes next day
>and the day after
>we play one on one everytime
Now here's the thing. He told me about a 3 vs 3 tournament this week end ans asked if I wanted to play with him and his brother. I said I didn't know if I was available.
Part of me wants to do it but I'm afraid I won't be able to play well (he's a little better than me). I don't want to have a panic attack in the middle of the crowd.
What should I do? I havent been to a crowed event in years
Honestly I'd make a good excuse not to go, try to get more comfortable around him, and if he asks again and I feel comfortable enough play. Honestly black guys are good friends to have because they will usually stick up for you. This is coming from a Cuban wetback.
I don't like the idea that me failing could bring down a whole team
Never had a real friend so I'm not sure but I don't think he ants to become friend. We don't talk much when we play.
just do it
Not a meme, not joking, you should get out of your comfort zone a bit and try to have fun with someone that is so openly trying to befriend you
If you feel like panicking? Well, if you're on the playing field just concentrate on the game with all your might, think about where your teammates are, where the ball is, what would be the best thing to do.
There is only one way to beat anxiety: becoming more out there and public. If you feel the fear of emberrasment that means you haven't got numb to it. Experience whatever the world has in store for you
You should do it, you may unlock an achievement in being an autist tomorrow, fuck you might want to kill yourself. At any rate the walls of the room will teach you nothing
You should do it
i played some basketball in elementary school. i was okay during practice but i always, ALWAYS choked hard during games.
what hurt most was my mom would always say i played great afterward even though i knew i was shit.
