It is natural to feel lost when your plan of action doesn’t work the way you thought. In moments like these, we need to remember that our situation is hard enough and we don’t need to go too hard on ourselves.
Things to do when too overwhelmed in such a moment:
- Hold yourself and acknowledge your past efforts.
- Take a break for yourself, there’s no harm in taking things slow after burnout. No competition is worth more than your well-being.
- Chart out alternatives, if you get the desired course in a different college, or a different course in the desired college, pick what’s most suitable.
- Think or take a drop year and a re-exam, there is no harm in giving yourself a second chance if you have determination towards this desired path of career.
Lastly, remember not to base your self-worth on a college seat or influence relationships with friends or family because of the gap which may have been created because of this.
You mean more than the competition.
You’re worth more than a score.
Your identity is beyond what academic path you choose.
