Let Your Guard Down and Just Play the Game.
I love board games. I like winning them but mostly I like the social time and the challenge of a good game. For a long time, I have struggled with social anxiety. I have a deep fear that if I make one wrong move during a social situation people will hate me. This is especially prevalent when it comes to games. I worry if I enjoy games the way I like to people will never invite me to play again. You may be able to relate to this and know how hard it is to enjoy yourself when you never let your guard down. Recently people close to me have been encouraging me to just play the game and not worry what others think.
