Hi! I’m a 17 years old student and I am constantly anxious about my future, more precisely anxious about my studies. My whole life, I’ve been a student who did not have to work that hard to get good grades, but i’ve come to a point where i don’t know if ”good” will be enough for my future. I am constantly scared of not being good enough, of failing, of not getting in any school etc. My future is everything to me, the reason i’m alive today is because of the thought of my future life and how happy i will possibly be. I’ve recently begun meditating but i’m scared it won’t be enough to ease my anxiety. So that’s that. I just wanted to write it down in hope of feeling better. Thank you.
I hope writing everything down and getting your thoughts ‘off your chest’ was helpful? It’s great to that you are learning to manage your anxiety through meditation and writing.
I am wondering about your situation with your study skills… You mentioned that you haven’t had to work hard to get good grades and you fear that luck may be coming to an end.
Do you feel that you have relied on natural ability as opposed to studying? Do you have any study skills?
I think there is a stage in life where everyone has to work hard to develop some skills and knowledge. When you feel confident in your ability to overcome these new challenges your anxiety should ease.
As a tutor, it is important to remember that often we learn from making mistakes. So even if mistakes are made that is okay and part of the learning process. Every single person in the world makes mistakes!
