Fear of failure

Everyone gets scared or nervous just before an important or difficult performance, but…

Do you panic when you have to do an internship, an exam or an assignment?
Can't think of anything else but your studies or do you run away from it?
You don't succeed at your internship despite good preparation: week in the knees, stuttering, doubts?
Do you lose contact with yourself, your pupils, your patients or clients when there is 'control'?
Does your throat tighten during the review, are you acting defensive, do you deny the problems, do you not know what to say, do you also get a low grade resulting in more anxiety at the next step?
Are you unable to study for an exam because of your fear, are you unable to say anything at the exam purely due to your nerves?
Then a session fear of failure might help you.

Where is the connection?

Loneliness is an overwhelming, frightening and numbing state of being. It always lingers on. You can also feel detached in a city where you don't know anyone and you don't speak the language. Or you may even feel lonely surrounded by people.
Do you ever feel alone during your study abroad? Do you miss more genuine connection? Do you want to learn how to handle this emotion better? And do you want to meet nice people who are in a similar situation?

How do you want to live?

From kindergarten to secondary school, we hardly had to make choices. The course of our life was mostly predetermined. Now you have to decide by yourself. We are given an infinite amount of choice, which makes us feel more pressured to select the right one. This makes us feel like we are in constant doubt. How can you use your colorful personality to make good choices for yourself?

The experience of being decoupled from the social construct of your home base for a while, causes you to get to know yourself even more. You came closer to yourself in the past period abroad. You know better who you are and how you want to live. How can you fully accept yourself after discovering who you truly are? And how can you preserve these changes once back home?
