I'm 16. My entire life seems to be revolving around getting into a good university. Im a good student, but my classes are getting tougher and I'm trying my best to keep my gpa up. I'm giving my SATs in November. In short, I am stressed and scared. Every single minute of the day I'm consumed by crippling fear as to what will happen. Even if I don't get into the Uni I want, it's okay, but what's not okay is that in the process I keep comparing myself to others and end up upsetting myself. I am going to major in a STEM field (and I've wanted so for 2 years now). However, it's been a couple months since I'm reconsidering. I don't know if it'll truly make me happy. To be honest, I don't know what does. Traveling, maybe; I doubt I'll be able to make a career out of it. So in short: I am scared and keep comparing myself. Their best to my worst. And 2: I don't know if what I plan on doing in life will make me happy. I don't know what will.
Don't compare yourself to others. Everyone is different. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. Relax. Breathe. And be yourself.
Do whatever makes you happy. Try new things. If it doesn't work out then you have a gain by learning something new. It's good to develop multiple skills that might help in other job descriptions and/or life in general
