This is a topic that I’ve struggled with lately so I thought I’d make a small post about it. Recently, I was given an amazing opportunity – this was a goal that I had set myself at the beginning of the semester. I was surprised, shocked and incredibly nervous. After it was over, I didn’t really know how to feel and spent an entire week agonizing over what I said and how I behaved. I drove myself crazy over analyzing the situation and my brain was filled with constant thoughts of “I should’ve said this instead…” or “I shouldn’t have said that, why did I say that?”. It took me awhile to realize that I needed to stop. This isn’t the end of the world and that I should’ve been proud of myself for how far I had come.
This is what I want to emphasize – be proud of how far you have come. Be proud of how you have overcome so many obstacles to get to where you are today. Stop comparing yourself to other people and focus on your own goals in life. You worked hard to get to where you are – imagine how much higher you could climb if you worked even harder?
Value the experiences you’ve had because they have helped shaped who you are today. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and be proud of all your achievements and milestones, no matter how big or small! If things don’t go the way you want, try not to despair because better opportunities will come your way that will make you realize why the thing you wanted so badly before, didn’t work out.
Hope you all have an amazing Easter break x
