A sense of confusion and uncertainty sometimes with feelings of anxiety that may affect us exposed to an alien culture or environment without adequate preparation. We meet in a new world with diverse cultural backgrounds and our differences make us become more open-minded and understanding. This is the beauty of our world to see how we engage each other with very unique values. Real harmony is always based on mutual respect.
