It’s college admission season in my country, and I feel I am sinking into the blackhole of my own expectations. I’ve been an academic overachiever all my life till the pandemic started and as a result, I may not get into the colleges that I have the potential for and dreamed about. Even though I have already secured admission with full scholarship in one of my backup colleges, it just doesn’t seem enough. I know it might seem like a small issue to most people and even to me, a few years in the future, but rn I am losing a lot of sleep over it (writing this 30 hours awake and not sleepy at all). I figured I’ll ask the wiser men of Reddit how they deal with failing in their own eyes.
