Overcoming Excessive Fear Of Achievement?
I have a high fear when I want to go home because I am an overseas student. The fear arises when I remember my academic at the university I studied. I’ve tried my best, but it’s still like that. How is it treated?
Hi Siti. The condition you are experiencing is something that requires further study. Is it true that your fear is due to embarrassment due to your academics, or is it due to the possible way your parents view you or the treatment and expectations of your parents? Of course, excessive fear in general can be caused by a past psychological event, or indeed a similar family history. You can try to talk or try to open up to your family about your academic condition before you go home. By telling your family about your condition before going home, you can assess their initial response and help you determine what your next course of action is. After all, your family wants the best for you.
Consult with a psychologist or psychiatrist so that you can describe in more detail about your fears in order to get a path that is more suitable for your condition. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
