Blog 8 | Emma | Friendship

22 years old. Often I hear people say: ‘count your blessings’. Honestly, I think I could go on forever. Looking back at my life, I have more than a thousand things to be grateful for. Up until now, I have had the best life that I can imagine. One of these things that I am extremely grateful for are my friends. Growing up, I’ve always had two groups of friends.

Blog 6 | Charlotte | The pressure to be perfect

So many young people are experiencing so much pressure right now, that it gives them many mental health complaints. The pressure in your head where you think everything should be perfect, that you should be perfect. The pressure becomes too much for young people, which quickly causes depression and burnouts. I still believe that social media has to do with this pressure being felt even more. Purely because it gives us a lot of information that we simply wouldn't know without the online platforms.

Blog 5 | Emma | There’s no such thing as a stupid question

‘Hey Emma, what do you study again?’ ‘I am a Social Innovation student, but no it is not what you think, I am not that ‘zweverig’.

Blog 5 | Charlotte | It’s an on-going cycle

It is time to share a new insight based on a new theory: The Life cycle. A well-known cycle that we all experience in life. That is why it can also be applied to both our society, or we as a person, and to an organization such as the GGD. The cycle shows that we as humans prefer to have control over everything, that this is in our nature. But that it is more valuable to first look at your crisis and transform it, before you focus on getting your control again. Look back at your mistakes and learn from them. That too can give us peace of mind and less mental pressure. It is a theory that provides clarity about our approach, which can always be used in different situations.

Blog 3 | Charlotte | 2020’s pandemic

Who would have thought that the whole world would stop for a moment? Streets are empty, hospitality is closed, cities are in complete lockdown and suddenly there is a whole new society where we have to live 1.5 meters apart and our daily structure completely disappears. You would almost think it's all a joke. A prank. Very funny earth, but where are the cameras? Nobody could have imagined that a virus would have such a big impact on our earth. Yet this is now our reality.
