Every time I see this picture I can’t help but feel so happy and have this ridiculous smile on my face. One of the first raves I attended 2 years ago, I immediately lost my group. We weren’t able to establish a meeting spot and I left my phone in the car. I spent the next 20 or so minutes wandering the venue, on the brink of tears and an anxiety attack while everyone around me was having the time of their lives. I could feel my vision start to blur and the sound and lights amplify 10 fold, causing my anxiety to peak. By that point, I found a quiet corner to sit but as I was on my way, I heard the most cheerful voice say, “Hey you! Come dance with us!” One girl took my hand and led me to a group of 5 others. They asked me my name, if I was ok, where my group was, and made me feel so welcome within minutes. They offered to stay and dance with me until I found my group and one of the guys carried me on his shoulders around the entire venue so I can get a better view of everyone around me in hopes of tracking down my group much quicker. For the next hour until I found my friends, I felt so at home, from dancing, trading, and simply talking. These 6 strangers took time out of their experience to help out one lost girl and I’ll forever be grateful. To this day, I always make sure to offer my time to anyone who looks lost or in need of a helping hand at a show. Sandra, if you’re reading this, thank you so much.
