Gap year fears - July 19th 2009, 03:40 PM

So, as part of my gap year, i'm spending 4 months in volunteering in africa.

But now everything paid and organised i've started freaking out. I'm so scared that I'll muck something up. I'm working in a childrens centre- kinda small orphanage and school.

Unless i'm told exactly what to do, I get really panicky and nervous, and i'm so scared.

What if i muck up? I'm so scared i've stopped sleeping and having panick attacks again. I need to sort this, because its something i really want to do. But i'm so scared.

Wow how awesome, How did you apply for that i always wanted to do that

You have to think what your doing is greatly appreciated by the people your helping and remember they rely on you

Never feel like you don't measure up. Life isn't about trying to live up to someone else's expectations. It's about setting goals for yourself and accomplishing them. And through that, hopefully, you will discover and experience thousands of occurences that will help shape your true self. Aslong as you try your best

Take a few minutes every hour taking time for yourself and relaxing, Dont stress yourself over small things

Sorry im not much help, other people will help you alot more

wow it sounds like it's gunna be an amazing experience! try not to get too worked up about it. i'm sure the person leading the project or head at the school/orphanage will make sure you know exactly whats going on and make sure you're involved. try to relax and look forward to it. worrying isn't going to help anything at all. i hope you have an amazing time..!

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
