Leaving the UK with VSO scares me.
I am scared to pick up my life, again, and start afresh somewhere new, again.
I am scared of the challenges a year in a new place brings.
I am scared of the organising and all the forms that need filling in.
I am scared that I’m actually a fraud and I don’t know what I’m doing.
I am scared I won’t be any help.
I am terrified of being lonely.
I might not face all these fears properly but I know this is what I’m meant to be doing, and more – I know I’ll cope fine in the end, I’m good at this moving countries business. It doesn’t mean I won’t panic occasionally though.
