Hey guys, I’ve noticed that one of the best forms of encouragement is knowing that you aren’t alone in a certain situation. I wanna make this thread so people can reply one of their low points in school and how they rebounded from it. For example, in high school I struggled so much with math. I got grades like 40s, I believe even in the 30s, but I tried to push myself to do better so I wouldn’t fail and I ended up with a decent final grade. Also, I did horrible in math and yet I got into all the colleges I applied for. So if you’re worried that colleges only look at one subject and base your acceptance of off that, we’ll don’t. Anyway, I hope people respond with their lows in school and say how they rebounded
thank you ben!
Np! I think stuff like this would help others out
This is a great idea!
I was also horrible in math too and I found out very late in high school I have dyscalculia.
Fast forward to when I went to college. I had finance and accounting class and had to deal with numbers again. I was horrible in it and although I was good at all the other subjects, I was so bad in that class, it destroyed my whole GPA and if I would have failed that subject on my exam, I would have not received my diploma.
Fast forward to now, I THANK GOD passed my exam like 2 years ago and I work now in an invoicing department where I HAVE TO DEAL WITH NUMBERS EVERYDAY AND I LOVE THAT JOB. And mind you, I swore myself to never ever have a job where I have to deal with numbers
So to everyone if you are struggling: I was dumb in math, like really dumb and if I can make it, so can you
In school I was bullied and called ugly everyday. But now I have 10+ guys from my old school in my dms every week telling me I’m cute.(even some that bullied me)
It makes me feel better about myself that I am way cuter than they ever will be ( personality wise atleast) lol ily all
I kinda don’t want to be specific or personal, but I realize part of the reason I used to fail pretty hard at school was because I felt like the work became insurmountable. Just try it and look at it realistically, and doing it will feel so much easier. It helps a lot
I didn’t have too many close friends in high school but coming to college there are so many amazing people I have been able to meet who like the same stuff I do!! I highly recommend to join a club or two for those entering college soon!
I think I’m the only one here STILL in high school and STILL struggling.
No way there are sooo many people here in high school. Struggling is part of the journey, but you’ll make it out in one piece trust me
this is why you are the legendary ex-expert
Dont worry my dude, i guarantee i im the biggest loser in this aspect
