I’m taking many advanced classes for my age and I am drowning in work. I’m too scared to ask questions because I don’t want anyone to think I don’t belong in my advanced classes. I feel like I have a reputation to up hold. I don’t know why I am doing this anymore. Maybe it was to prove everyone wrong about me, that I can handle the work, that I am smart enough to do it? Or maybe it was to make me feel better about myself? I just don’t know what to do anymore. I’m trying to figure things out with the limited options I have given myself.

If you are loving the classes, if you willingly took those classes, if you decided to attend them in order to gain skills for you own good then you are doing it RIGHT. If the answer to any one or all the questions is NO, you are unnecessarily pushing yourself to do something which you should have applied to something else you like doing.

To answer, I believe you are doing to prove yourself because of low Self Esteem or confidence in you and to show others you are no less and capable of everything they are. This attitude never let’s you feel positive and good about you. If you try to be like someone else, A) you will never be able to be like one, B) you will disappoint yourself at every step.

Rather just focus on what you want, how you want it, what all I can do, how can I upskill my skills for my own good, how will it help me in the long run and then you will see you have those skills which other’s don’t have but you do. Focus on yourself and only you. When you know your thing people would love to know what you know rather than asking what is that you tried to learn from someone else.

I hope you understand and work on it :)
