I’m going to my shower today, hosted by some of my amazing FIs wonderful family. I’m so excited for this, except for that I have social anxiety…and I haven’t met some of these people (multiple of these people!) I’m afraid I’m going to start panicking.
Anyone else have a shower where it was also kinda a meet-and-greet into the family?

I had a baby shower 5 years ago nd I didn’t know half the guest list. It was kind of the same almost 7 years before that (LOL). It was kind of odd thanking people without knowing who they were… looking for them in the crowd so I could actually see who gave me such wonderful gifts.
I was so genuinely thankful that these people who barely knew me would give me a gift it brought tears to my eyes (yeah I cried in front of all those people LOL). It’ll be fine. They are there because they love your fi and want to share in his big day… which means they have accepted you as family as well, which is why they are there. Have fun.
