What’s something you wish someone would say to you?
Hmmm, this one is a bit difficult because I think there a few things I wish someone would say to me. I’m going to go with my top 2.
I think the thing I need to hear most is “you are needed.” Everyone needs to hear this yet people rarely do. I really don’t have an explanation for this one but when life gets tough and shit hits the fan and you start to question your worth, it’s always good to be reassured by someone.
Another thing I wish someone would tell me is “I’m proud of you.” My entire life good grades have been expected of me. I got straight As for a long time and each time I would bring a report card home and the letter was a B or even an A- sometimes, I’d always get “why isn’t this an A?” There are 6 other As on my report card and they’re focused on my ONE B. I don’t know. My junior and senior year of high school I went through a lot mentally and my grades went down (nothing below a C thank god… but I did get a C…). My parents didn’t say anything but you could tell they were disappointed. It sucks because I was still trying my hardest but As were always expected so anything less was pretty much unacceptable. Whenever my parents and grandparents would talk to me (especially now) it’s ALWAYS “how are grades?” Now, I’m not trying to say that grades are unimportant but there are more important things than a 4.0. It just sucks because my bust my ass In every single class I take and it really goes unnoticed and the only things that are noticed are what aren’t perfect. I made Dean’s List this semester and I got a congratulations but it was expected of me, so it didn’t seem genuine. I just wish that someone (besides my roommate who sees me studying literally every single day) would notice the hard work that I put in and that the grades I get are because of how hard I work day in and day out.
What do you wish someone would say to you? (I’m very curious about this one so please tell me haha)
