However, time progressed, the obstacles to its realization were being placed in the way and, therefore, the stimulus that I channeled towards the activity ended up withering away. Despite everything I’ve just listed, the work group has always remained united and has its head held high, ready to embrace every task that was asked of us, showing itself to be resilient and persistent in the face of setbacks.</span></p>

However, the fact that the workgroup is making progress with the tasks gives me a feeling of accomplishment and productivity, which is positive. Furthermore, I truly hope that we can implement the activities in person, it would be a very enriching moment of sharing and interaction, at various levels, for both parties.</span></p>

I feel at an impasse and with a feeling of enormous impotence. The situation in question is beyond me, and the feeling of feeling that it is not just up to me to formulate a resolution leaves me quite disheartened and disconcerted. The date for the delivery of the report is approaching and the institution has not contacted us yet to give an answer. How will we be evaluated if we are unable to carry out the activities? How are we going to write the individual part of the report without implementing the activities, without having carried out the fieldwork? I have been very worried and discouraged about this whole situation. I feel there is no Plan B and it will be truly unfair for us to be harmed by something we didn’t choose to happen. For myself, I have learned to deal better with frustration and anxiety. It has been a constant sensation that insists on prevailing, due to the situation in which the working group finds itself. We are very afraid of what will come as a solution to the problem and if there really will be a solution. The pressure has gone to extreme and I had to create mechanisms to learn to manage these sensations.</span></p>
