Does anyone have any insights and advice?
Hi, I’m a 20 year old junior in college. I used to be someone who really cared about her grades, but things have changed. There is now neutrality about my grades, even though in the back of my mind I know how important they are for my future and a good career. This neutrality affects me in terms of being lazy, not feeling motivated, and not caring enough. This neutrality is new for me and for the first time I’m seeing myself differently; I have always been extremely hardworking and dedicated when it comes to school. In fact, my mom says school is what I do best. At the beginning of my sophomore year, I had to drop a semester of classes due to health issues. For most of my life I have always sort of lived in my protective bubble, my own perfect world, never really noticing my surroundings or realizing that the world was filled with problems. I don’t know why, but for some reason I’m the quietest person that I know, maybe even the quietest person in the world. I was born a pre-mature baby, so that might be a contributing factor. Even though I was extremely quiet (still am) and didn’t have any close friends that did not bother me. My focus was on school. When I entered college, I did have classes with former high school friends as we were all science majors. When I got sick and had to drop classes, I suddenly felt distant from my friends. Even though they were not close friends, I talked to them every day and we had lunch together in high school. I felt a little sad, even though I didn’t really acknowledge my feelings. When I returned to school after my sick leave, my focus and dedication was not the same. However, I know that I’m quiet and I feel okay with myself. I accept me for who I am. I don’t know though. I think that maybe the whole neutrality about grades thing could stem solely from my laziness, not wanting to do anything but lie around all day. I think a part of me realizes life is work and doesn’t know if that is something I really want or enjoy. I mean college is work, and after that, I have to work at a job. How do I know if I’ll be satisfied in life? I know I must sound immature. Thank you for your time.

Examine the path you're on. Maybe the "success" you are pursuing isn't something you want at all, just what you thought you wanted. No longer desiring the things others encourage you to do often happens as we grow and learn about ourselves. Look inwards, not outwards and don't fall victim to what others expect from... More
