Anonymous asked: When I was in my 2nd year of undergrad, I felt exactly like that. I was working my hardest & not getting the best grades. I felt I wasn't good enough every single day and cried myself to sleep. University can be so hard. But you just have to remember to be kind to yourself, remember you're more than your grades. There are so many types of intelligences beyond what grades can measure. When you let go of grades and just do what you love & are passionate about, the rest will fall into place.
aww <3 you’re sweet, thank you for those kind words :)
my finals start tomorrow.
do you ever feel like nothing you do is ever good enough. you get a 3.3 gpa and it’s never good enough. you study your ass off and still get 70s because apparently you’re not smart enough.. you have this dream you’ve been chasing since you were 13 to become a therapist. a counsellor. something to help people. a tool, an ear, a friend. and then you come all this way to stop and learn that you’re not good enough. 3.3 won’t cut it. gotta get those 3.7s gotta get those letters of recommendation, that experience, those connections. gotta get into grad school gotta get your phd gotta do a post-doc.
the money, the stress, the studying, the work it’ll take to get you there. and when you get there you might not even get a job. if you get there. if you ever make it that far. but it’s the only thing you see yourself doing. the only thing you’ve wanted to do for seven years and you find out now that you’re not good enough. what do you do. what now.
i cry myself to sleep about my future every night.
