Everyone’s getting into my first choice college, but me. Even though I haven’t heard from them yet, I pretty much know the outcome. The worst part about all this is I know I don’t even deserve to go there. I just didn’t work hard enough in high school. So I’m not going to mope around anymore because there’s nothing I can do about it now. All I can do is take my acceptances to my other options, choose one, start new in college and work hard so I could transfer in two years. I’m gonna take this mistake and the lesson from it to college so I won’t have to feel this feeling of not trying hard enough again.
I think the reason why so many people are unhappy is because they are waiting for a time when everything is perfect. They are waiting for a day when they wake up and everything clicks, where nothing is going wrong. That day wont ever come. There will always be suffering, things will always be going wrong. That isn’t a reason to be upset. You don’t wait for all the suffering to be gone, you find happiness through the suffering.
