Hey guys, I just finished my lunch and thought to myself about this topic after watching a YouTube video on guitar jam camp thingie by Periphery, my favourite band right now.
So they were all having fun, and you know, there were smiles and stuff. Then I thought to myself, man, these few days, just being caught up in the rat race, really made me lose sight of who I am. Sometimes I doubt my identity, but I know one thing is for sure, I always, always go back to two of my passions at the end of the day, and that’s really what matters more than the grades that I got to work for only during these few weeks.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in fear of failure, getting bad grades and all, but in reality, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
Sure, you need the grades, but does it matter that much if you fail? No, just pick yourself up and try again. Enjoy the process, as my friend told me one night over a Starbucks 2 days ago.
It’s easy to lose yourself.
There’s no need to be scared of anything really. There’s no such thing as, if I fail this it will be the end of the road. It isn’t.
You gotta keep telling yourself that. Right now, I’m trying my best, and that’s enough. No need to compare grades, or past performances and expectations from other people.
And of course, if I ever get down and lost, I should always go back to what makes me the happiest, and remember that life isn’t always about all of this nonsense.
Thanks for entertaining my messy post-lunch thought process. I’m going through an intense period of exams and submissions right now, but I must keep at it and stop being so fearful of failure.
Cya guys soon.
