I have this really successful friend, who always gets great scores on tests and constantly practices and has straight A’s. I always feel inferior to my friend and have the urge to prove myself.
Compared to my friend I get straight A’s as well, but I don’t really succeed in tests, usually barely receiving an A. I am a lot more social than my friend though and before covid, was in lot of school sports teams.
Now we have AP tests coming up, and I just started practicing, while my friend has been practicing for a long time. I feel like I am going to fail and they are going to do better than me on the test, and because of that probably be more successful in life. I know it’s stupid but I am feeling a lot of pressure build up, and I don’t know what to do.
Well just take a nap and when you wake up just think does his success really even matters to u. As u said your good in sports man go with it . No need to panic and get jealous
i do the same thing with my best friend but a little differently. Shes prettier than me and gets way more boys, has way more friends, is more outgoing while im more reserved. Everytime someone asks to hangout they always ask her, and i just kinda tag along. I kinda feel like im living in her shadow, or that im just the secondary friend everyone knows as “blanks” friend.
