Reign: A bit of pressure might be good for you because it actually motivates you to perform better, but too much can make you implode. You can't base your success in the future on little failures of the past because you have no certainty of what will happen next in your life. You can learn from your mistakes but you can't let it eat you alive.
Anna: No that is not a good thing. And you may feel that if you don't succeed in some things you'll feel bad, but actually it sounds like you need to succeed in everything for you not to feel bad. You have a lot of time to figure out what you're really good at and what you suck at. I mean, you can't be good at everything, right?
"I know a lot of people have said this already but I still feel like I'm not making the right college decisions. I'm about to graduate in a few days and I still feel anxious about my college and career choice. Help?"
Reign: I guess sometimes you just have to make impulse decisions and risks and hope for the best. The future is scary but we can't really avoid it so make the most out of whatever decisions you make.
Anna: Chill. Knowing what course you're destined for will take a substantial amount of time and the sad reality is not all of us have enough time to make our decisions. So, I suggest you start thinking really hard about things. Know what are your strengths and the courses that are out there that will coincide with them. Then you can make a plan on shifting to that course, school, or whatever. That's all you can do for now, plan.
"I hate being asked what I want to do in the future because honestly I have no idea. Like, yeah I should have decided on what my career will be but what if I change my mind in the near future, right? I just wanted to rant about how I'm so sick of people asking about MY future. It's getting annoying."
Reign: I feel the same way about people asking what my college is or what career path I'm going to take. They just don't understand the way you think. Some people set their minds on only one idea and whenever someone doesn't necessarily follow that idea, they become judgmental, you get what I mean? You know what screw them. This is your life and your decision; don't let them mess with your head.
Anna: Well, I know you can't escape all those nosy adults who'll ask you this. Do not lose your temper in front of them because it really won't do anyone good. You can always say "I'm not sure but..." and then expound on the course that you're taking till they get bored.
