It’s the start of a new school year. Maybe you’re in high school, maybe you’re in college, or maybe something else. At the beginning it’s all jitters and butterflies and hopeful encounters with your new classes and teachers and thinking, “Maybe this year I’ll get straight A’s and I can finally stop being stressed!”
And I understand the temptation to think that your grades – mere numbers or letters on a report card – are all that’s separating you from your current, possibly depressing situation and a stress-free, happy existence. Believe me, I used to be you.
I was the almost straight-A honors and AP student who was doing homework six to eight hours every night and never once went to a single party in high school. I was the one crying about the tests I failed my first month of high school because I thought surely then my life was over, when in reality it had only just begun.
I was the one sobbing through math and physics and chemistry tests because despite the fact that I studied more than most of my peers combined, I struggled with all of it to the point that I was making myself sick and destroying my health.
And more than anything, I was anxious and depressed. Some days I felt like I couldn’t breathe, and sometimes I’d have anxiety attacks in the middle of class. All because I stressed out about my grades and classes and not getting into a “good” college like we were pressured into over and over again by both our teachers and some unknown force.
Spoiler alert: I was accepted into several great colleges. I do want you to realize that obsessing over your grades and what classes you’re in and what colleges are accepting or rejecting you is causing you unnecessary stress and anxiety. And ultimately, none of this matters.
If you’re not happy and healthy, then all the straight A’s in the world don’t mean anything.
So whether you’re starting school in regular classes or you fail a few tests your first month back or maybe you’re going to your local community college and not your dream school, try not to stress out too much – your grades are not a reflection of your worth as a human being. You are a valuable human being all on your own. 🙂
Good luck this year. You can do this.
