Navigating huge crowds at major events can cause great anxiety. For example, going to an arena concert or an NFL football game can include encounters with crazy fans, rude comments, long lines, and difficulty transporting to and within the vicinity. I used to avoid major events because of those reasons. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I overcame those anxieties.
Each year, my husband Justin and his close friends spend a weekend together to see the Buffalo Bills play the New England Patriots, whether the game is in Buffalo, New York, or Foxborough, Massachusetts. Last year was the first time I joined the gang and went to my first game in good ol’ Buffalo.
Because I was apprehensive about going, Justin took care during the planning process to ensure the trip would be easy and stress-free. Justin and I also went to see the Buffalo Bills play the New York Jets last week, and he carried out the exact same thoughtful planning.
