I’m in a rigorous education program and school has only just started. I’ve carved my path to be within the STEM realm, but I’m having doubts and second thoughts about myself and my choice. What if I don’t make it? What if I’m not smart enough for this? I keep thinking that I don’t belong in this class with all these smart students. I’m scared, honestly. I’m scared I won’t pass and get my diploma. It’s lonely, really. It feels like I don’t have anybody to rely on except for myself. I’m already so overwhelmed and I’m afraid that will affect my overall demeanor and my grades. I can feel time escaping my grasp and running away from me. I don’t know who to share this with, but thanks for reading.
