Come sit with yourself,
just for a moment.
Put an arm around your waist,
your head on a shoulder.
Be kind to yourself,
as you would to others.
Just for a moment,
come sit with yourself.
Be courageous. Hold on. Hold tight.
(*a walk, a talk or laughing out loud, going out for drinks, dreaming the wildest dreams or doing some studying perhaps…)
How much you are worth to me, can not be measured in grades.
Life can be like swimming. Sometimes you need to swim against the tide, sometimes you will face bigger waves.
But always choosing your own stroke.
I hear you.
And I love seeing you.
Listen to yourself.
To what is silenced but wants to be heard.
That’s the first step to conversation.
You are not alone. Get inspired by other students' stories about vulnerability and doubt. But above all about the power of connectedness.
