"I was having problems with my first host family at the beginning and I remember there was one day when I was so tired that all I could think was, 'Nevermind.I want to go home.' But when I was super close to telling that to my parents back in India, I stopped and wondered that if my other friends on exchange can do this why can't I? Why should I let these problems rule my exchange? It's only one year, one year that I was lucky enough to have. And I wanted to go back? No way and not like this.
That was the day I started perceiving things differently and taking up problems as challenges, started facing them head on instead of running away. This is just one of the many things I learnt in Brazil and it helps me even today.
Exchange, no matter good or bad, teaches us a lot of things that can help us all throughout our lives. I think it's just our perception." @urvi_waeerkar
