My parents constantly compare me to my friends and I fall short of their expectations!

Question : I have my board exams coming up and I’m getting extremely stressed. I’m feeling anxious and unsure of my preparation and somehow my parents are constantly comparing me to my friends and other classmates. I’m feeling the pressure as I want to keep up to my parents expectations. Will I ever be good enough for them? Teentalker , 13-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

The dreaded board exam pressure can get to the best of us and I know how chaotic the mind can get. As the dates of board exams draw closer, panic can set in and shake our world. The key to managing the pressure lies in the preparation phase. Here are some active steps you can take:

  • Cultivate your strength and set goals for yourself and meet them.
  • Be proud of your achievements
  • Prepare well in advance and practice
  • Get some quality sleep and take brief time outs to help you refocus
  • Check on the thoughts.....
