A common concern our tutor group had was our privacy online
Other common concerns were:

Will I have a job/my dream job?
Will I be happy?
Will I be in this country?
Will I still talk to my current friends in the future?
Will I make my family proud?
Will I be healthy?
Will I have enough money?
Will I get the right grades?
Will I get a car and learn to drive?
Will I progress on to college and university?
It’s easy to fall prey to negative thinking. Having negative thoughts that play out like a movie can only bring you distress, something that we have all probably experienced.
Negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment. The more you give in to your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. Like a small ball rolling along the ground, and as it rolls, it becomes bigger and faster.
That’s what one small negative thought can turn into: a huge, speeding ball of ugliness. On the contrary, a small positive thought can have the same effect blossoming into a beautiful outcome.
We wanted to define the word concern...
"See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort" Dalai Lama
