It will make no bad. You will learn MANY new things. Will be open minded. Will feel full. Won't hurt anyone being this way, it's just another way of being. Hoping, wanting, trying, winning or losing. Not being afraid of hoping; not being afraid of wanting; not being afraid of trying and not minding if you win or lose if you have been able just to try. Appreciating things that some people aren't even aware that exist.
And that is thinking outside the box.
Take a chance yourself. That's my advice.
