Personally, as much as I want to wear beanies and snapbacks in public, I always feel reluctant to do so since I'm afraid of being judged negatively. Let's be honest. A good percentage of people who wear snapbacks and beanies are fans of hip hop. As much as I like hip hop, I don't want to be seen as though I'm someone who tries too hard to be seen as a guy who's into hip hop. I'm Asian. I'm not black. That's part of the reason why I don't really want to express my love for hip hop in public. However, I guess I realized today that I should just wear whatever I want to wear and not care about what others think as long as I'm not harming anyone. We have one life to live. It's not worth it to be afraid of being yourself just because you fear judgment from other people. My goal is to overcome my self-consciousness and social anxiety within the next few months. Hopefully, everything works.
Have you ever been through this?
