Along with the development of globalization, more and more issues are brought to our attention, one of the most heatedly discussed issues is working abroad. Undoubtedly, it poses not only chances but also challenges to the people.
There are a host of factors might contribute to the problem. One of the most common factors is mental pressure. Far away from families and friends, it is inevitable to feel a sense of solitary. Another contributing cause is culture difference, which prevents us from communicating with foreigners to a large extent. In other words, we are not confident enough to come out of our comfort zone to embrace the challenge and succumb to the difficulties.
Confronted with such problems，we should take a series of effective measures to cope with the situation. First and foremost, confronted with great pressure, the best method is to communicate with friends or family members to unburden the feelings. Also, the universities and colleges should also pay more attention to graduates’ mental health and take effective actions such as providing psychological service for students helping them to deal with mental problems. Furthermore, a little bravery can result in the possibility of success when confronted with something unknown. Meanwhile, the sense of never giving up enhances one’s self-confidence. This makes one more likely to try new things, opening up even more new opportunities. With the efforts of all parts concerned, the problem will be solved thoroughly.
