Ans: I can appreciate the sense of pressure you must be feeling. We all wish to do well, feel good about ourselves and get the respect and admiration of others. I am sure you notice that your best friend gets plenty of adulation and you must wish you do too. Every person is a singular individual with interests, talents and abilities unique to themselves. And if these are observed, admired and valued, it allows the person to lead a happy life following their own interests and developing their own unique capacities. Instead, we hanker after what others have or achieve, without paying attention to ourselves, what interests us, or our own capabilities. The most successful and happy people in the world didn’t necessarily get high marks. They had confidence in themselves, because they felt loved and admired for who they were, not for what they achieved externally. I would suggest you try and accept your limitations in this area and try and figure out what you enjoy doing, and where else your strengths may lie. I am sure you will do well and be satisfied if you are able to come to terms with your limitations and focus on developing your strengths.
