Hey nothing Ridiculous about it at all.
SPX is a hustling, bustling place. And anxiety of the kind you’re talking about is nothing that we’d ever make fun of.
This show and any show like it can be an intense emotional experience. We hear that from many of the creators in attendance. It’s very real!
I guess what I’m saying is you don’t need my permission to be honest with yourself about what makes you happy and comfortable.
But I can also say that there are many people who have similar emotions that come to SPX and find community here that is nourishing and helpful to them even as the show itself is admittedly kind of overwhelming.
Hope we see you one of these days!
I totally understand where you are coming from. The crowd at SPX can certainly trigger my anxiety (and has!)
…but I hope you come anyway!
