What are you looking for?
1 month ago · · Stress,
There are a few subjects I am good at and a few more I am great at. I love English and the free writing tasks our teacher gives us. Now, I don't always get to read my text, but my teacher mentions how she liked it very much or how it was very good. Now, I don't want to seem like a complete assh!ole, but I feel super bad and sad when she doesn't say something good about it, like today. I feel like a failure and like I haven't done enough. Please don't tell me that I have a "low self esteem". I just...what's wrong with me? Also it's not like I have crush on my teacher, English was just an example.
I know that other people want to show off their good work as well and get some praise/critique, but I feel so...dumb and stupid when I don't get praised for my work.
Is this normal? If not ( which it probably is) what can I do to prevent it? Am I too harsh with myself? Please be nice, it isn't easy to talk/write about it.
Thank you and have a great day!!
