Now teaching myself to change that, I could just learn to take a risk like a person might do if they are afraid of heights; once they see that it’s not as scary as they thought, they fear is practically gone and that’s what I must do: I must just face my fear and realize that when people tell me there’s no reason to be shy or
Peer pressure can make you do bad things that can have terrible effects on your future and you will not be the same person you once were.

When you are yourself throughout life great accomplishments can happen and will help you become a better person.
Processing Trauma and Its Benefits to Society Often overlooked in conversations is trauma due to the uncomfortable nature of the subject. People for the most part will not bring the subject up in fear of upsetting someone, however, trauma is important to bring up and to learn from. Processing trauma and thus connecting and sympathizing with others can be humbling and eye-opening.

As Lucretius claims, everyone is frightened of something irrespective of their age. Lucretius explains that people keep the memories that have been torn for long because they cannot get rid of them. After someone has gone through a nice or pleasant experience, they tend to keep the good memories in the conscious mind where they are stored in the long term memory bank.
Manoeuvre 1: Fears ‘Have courage to acknowledge, confront and take ownership of your fear. That way nothing can stop you in life.’ -Megan Choong It’s no secret that most people have a great fear of speaking in public.

First of all, I could acquire many new ideas from courses and literature, and have discussions with my classmates and brew brand-new ideas by brainstorming. Secondly, I wish to be involved in more fieldwork experience so as to improve my social work skills. Besides, I hope to get more guidance during my social work practice because only reflection can make practice more valuable. Afterwards, participating in research work is another wish of me. I hope to get a chance to do research by conducting surveys or interviews, rather than mere literature research.
