This is something that I struggle with, and whether or not it is okay to not give 100% to every single thing. It has taken me time to understand that it is actually okay to not be the best, and I continuously tell myself this. For example, I did worse in Math 212 than Orgo, so I completely gave up taking math again. I studied more in math than Orgo, so I gave it up because I wasn’t the best. I am working on fully learning this lesson that being successful is trying my best and knowing that I gave my best. Whenever I am hard on myself, I always ask myself, “Would I treat my friend like this? Or someone that I know is struggling?” I still struggle applying the things that I say to other people to console them to myself, but I am working on it.
