Feeling the Feels

It is 100%, without a doubt, totally, completely, natural for you to feel scared, or anxious, or homesick, or like you don’t belong as you begin your university experience.

Imposter Syndrome, where you doubt your own capabilities and accomplishments, often affects new university students. If you ever find yourself sitting in class, believing you are the only one who doesn’t understand something… THIS IS FALSE. I Guarantee most of your peers feel the Exact. Same. Way.

If they don’t at the present time, they have in the past.

Admit these feelings (there’s no sense wasting energy in trying to deny them), but if they persist and begin to obstruct your daily activities, please seek a counsellor.
