Okay so it’s the last two weeks before its all over. well kind of. at least this year. But anyway, finals are here, projects are due. those long term things they gave you at the beginning of the year to do over the semester need to be started lol and now you might wanna start cracking open the books. okay, so this is going to be short because im literally in the middle of studying for a couple things tomorrow, but i wanted to try and get my thoughts down so maybe ill have some kind of understanding in how im actually doing right now.
So how do you go about studying for finals? or just completing any of the work that you have to now cram for? (at least thats me, i dont know the statistics on how many students rarely have to cram). i only ate an egg muffin this morning and haven’t eaten until an hour ago at 8pm. not a good idea. oh well.
so how do i do this? how do we do this? im trying not to be stressed, but also i know that im just suppressing my stress emotions, so later on i will probably have a meltdown. i know i dont really want that to happen since idk…but i have a feeling that it will be inevitable. and honestly i kind of like breakdowns because every time it always leads me back to the fact that i wont die, my life wont be over if i dont do the best on some test or finish a project to the best of my abilities. like seriously, big people have failed big things before. itll affect your grades yeah probably, but in actuality we have to realize that God doesn’t look at our grades and decide whether we’re on the right track or not, or if he approves or disapproves, if i disappoint him or not. he knows we’re going to fail things. he knows we’re not perfect. and all these things in our lives, failure and successes, they are all part of our real purpose. we’re created by him to glorify him and love others. and glorifying him doesnt mean we get all A’s. glorifying him means that we try our best with what he has blessed us with, and we stay close to him. we see our failures and know that they dont define us and that God works with it. he works with all of us, and he works it for our good.
so again, im just talking to myself really, but its okay if you get tired and dont study to the best of your abilities. im such a perfectionist, but i need to realize that nothing i do or nothing that i can try to do will ever be perfect. even my studying. its okay to be confused. dont worry itll be alright. even if you dont do well, its still okay. you wont die, God is still on the throne and God knows your future, he knows how good your future will be even though this may not have gone your way.
Here’s a guy that helped me with anxiety…
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
