Be yourself around difficult people
“I’ve learned so much about how to be more in control of situations. I am so much more confident now." Rachel, 17, Dublin
It can be hard to be yourself around certain people. Most of us struggle to be comfortable with some of the people in our lives. If you can relate to this, then you are not the only one! Whether they seem intimidating, judgmental or perhaps for no obvious reason whatsoever, the effect can be off-putting.
Our programme shows you how to start becoming the person you want to be around others, providing you with options that may not have been apparent before......and we know from experience that our approach works.
Shannon, a cheerful, generally confident teen of 16 found two girls in her class at school intimidating. Without knowing why, she could see she was trying to impress them and didn't like how this made her feel.
However, she accepted we all have insecurities and this was “just the way things are”.
At HeroPath she learned, in her own words, approaches that “made all the difference and just felt right!” She hadnʼt even known these thoughts were possible.
This simple stuff is remarkably powerful and effective. What we teach makes it possible to be the person you want to be. You can work out how to stop letting others intimidate you, stop letting your own weaknesses hold you back and stop settling for less than you are capable of.
