Evolving Emotions: Fear

Imposter syndrome, overthinking, and self-sabotage are among the many struggles faced by all people. When possible, take the leap and believe that you can. You are capable but must convince yourself of it for anything to be attempted and achieved.


This is the final installment of “Fear.” The topics of self-sabotage, calming reminders, and a touch of motivation are vitally important to discuss, especially in an academic context. I hope that you stay determined and chase what you want in life. You deserve it!





We’ve all been there: Hyperventilating in a corner or utterly hysterical over circumstances out of our hands. Just remember, you have lungs. So, take in some air, find some steady ground, and tread onward.
Is there a thought, goal, or dream cowering in the recesses of your mind collecting fictional dust? Perhaps taking it from the shadows and pursuing it without fear of unpleasant outcomes may be better than clogging your head with dust bunnies?
