and welcome back to my blog. I haven’t been writing these past couple days, because I’ve had a lot on my mind.
Being an exchange student can be challenging sometimes, especially when you’re gone for so long from home. It is challenging and all you can do, is face it. It’s part of the exchange year, and I mean, it was me who didn’t choose the easy way. I wanted to go to Canada and have an awesome time, so I will be having an awesome time.
Just sometimes, you need to overcome a more difficult time, to get to that awesomeness. And in those cases, if you feel like you might want a little bit of advice, ask for it.
This counts for everyone and everything. I came across this, now, on my exchange year. But I’m sure, every one of us comes once to a point where it’s good to be able to ask for a little help, a bit of advice, a push back in the right direction.
Well, I had just that. I asked for it and all I want to tell you, is, if you need it, ask for it too. Don’t be afraid of it. Please don’t be afraid to ask for help.
There’s a reason we have family and friends. They’re here to make you happy, to have a great time with you, but eventually, they’re here to have your back, if you need them. I am incredibly lucky, that in my case, I can really count on them. Just a little bit of advice, a talk, a different perspective, made all the difference for me.
So, the reason I am even telling you all this, is, that yes, I could’ve said nothing and struggled with it by myself and at some point I would’ve found a solution too. (I think)
But by asking for a little bit of support, it was a lot easier for and I’m glad it went like that. I mean even here in Canada, I’m not alone and I don’t have to be. I can ask whoever I want for help, if I need it, and so do you.
Im out and about,
