I am absolutely a person who struggles with feeling like I have to be an expert in things like this or something terrible will happen, letting myself just say "hi! I have no idea how to do this but I am happy to learn, what do I need to do" has been wildly helpful in dealing with this anxiety
@checkervest Yes! One of the best bits of advice I got, which managed to come at about age 18 shortly before I moved into a flat, was basically to say, "Hi, I would like to do xyz and I have no idea what I'm doing. Could you please help?"
It /is/ people in customer service jobs to help customers, after all, for which I'm eternally grateful.
@certifiedperson I am in my 30’s and I am only now learning this haha, it’s been so incredibly helpful and I wish I’d found out about it sooner!
