I probably ‘like’ him because he makes me feel better about myself

Keywords: {0}

There’s this person I respect who seems to be part of or head of every single club and a literal polyglot-musician-actress-mathematician genius but still somehow remains cheerful and gets good grades. I aspire to be like her, but yet don’t want to be like her – I want to be myself. I want to know what I’m passionate about and carve a little niche where I can be good at what I do. I know I want to be in a STEM career, but not specifically what I want to do. We are gearing up to IB and choosing our options, and all everyone seems to ask is “what do you want to be in the future?” I always say a doctor, but some days I ruminate about being an editor, or a museum curator. Careers that seem nothing to do with the path I’ll probably end up going.

I am stronger than my thoughts, I am in control of my own mind

Recently, I have been practicing that phrase to help center me in times of high anxiety and doubt. It did just that, and this time it helped me remember how badly I want to think back on this moment 8 months from now and laugh for being scared to start, how badly I want to feel comfortable 3 weeks from now when I shop for my wedding dress, and how badly I want to continue to write these blogs with an honest hand.
