As the school year is starting, I remember this quote. We often have a lot of expectations in life, but the one we put on our own shoulders are the worst. Be kind with yourself. Don’t expect perfection. Don’t compare yourself to others. Just be present and do your best.
“It’s important to learn to have reasonable expectations of yourself when you go to a new place. You’re not going to instantly figure out the way to learn and get 90s in all classes.” – Dr. Michael Van Ameringen
