I feel like I need to express and share with you everything that I’m feeling and hopefully some of you will learn or understand.
So I basically transferred to a university, and I’m having troubles adjusting. The professors aren’t that great, some just teach for the sake of money, some are just new and lack experience, and you know what, that’s okay. I understand. Sometimes I would blame them, or my former school curriculum, or just myself. I know, that is quiet pitiful for me to do because I should be focusing on all the good parts. I want to focus that I’m in one of the best universities in my country, I want to focus on the fact that it is OKAY to fail and to make mistakes, it’s okay to adjust, adapt, to be shy and awkward. I want all of you to know that it’s okay. Failing doesn’t mean you’re stupid, or you’re lazy, no. It is better to fail multiple times instead of giving up.
This new school of mine is really challenging. It’s hard to keep up with the students that came from advanced schools and have an easy time adjusting to their environment. You know what, I went to this school for a challenge and I got one. I was filled with a lot of fear, I was scared that I would have people laugh at me or my grandparents disappointed. But no, education does not work that way. Education is to help students learn, and sometimes we just learn from our mistakes. Sometimes we do a lot of stupid things that we regret, sometimes life just sucks, but it’s our choice to see it differently or to change it. We can change ourselves, I can adapt to this new environment, and at the end of the day, I want to say that I made it.
No matter what happens, just have fun. No matter on how much challenge and difficulty, just take it as a sign that you’r growing (got that from a quote.) Remember your dreams when you face challenges. My love, this life is for you to grow and cherish. It’s for you to be free and see the world with eyes filled with hopes and dreams. This is your life, you can make as many mistakes as you want, you can learn from them, and in that way you grow. You will grow, you will learn, just accept any challenge that comes your way and ask help when you need to.
This is your life, you do what you want with it. Put on earphones if someone says otherwise.
