Day 214

It’s exam time again!
I am thinking of all of his friends at university. A lot of them will graduate this year. 🙂
They have had a tough year.

What to do? Eat good food, drink plenty of water and get 6-8 hours of sleep every night.

Stick to a routine and do what makes you happy – exercise, dance, music, whatever releases your happy hormones and keeps you grounded. Painting, yoga, meditation, rowing, sewing, whatever rocks your boat.

Let it go. Accept the things that you can’t change (I know it sounds easy). Focus on the task at hand and take control by working through your revision plan and achieving your study goals, working through past papers and giving it your best shot on the day.

What not to do? 1. Worry. 2. Take chemicals that mess with the head. You don’t need them. You can do this better on your own.

Advice for parents : “Keep things in perspective,” say experts, “Listen to them, give support and avoid criticism.”
In some situations there are no second chances. Luckily that is not the case with exams.

Trust me, there is no one quite like you on this whole planet. You are precious. Don’t think you have to move mountains everyday for it to be worth something. Some days you just have to open your eyes. Nobody deserves to be here more than you. You deserve every happiness. It’s going to be alright. Much more than alright.

You are enough.

  1. Hello,

    I discovered your blog a few days ago, and since then I have read every post. I have bipolar and am currently hypomanic, I’m struggling to sleep but am still able to concentrate on things. Your blog is pretty much all I’ve done on my tablet while everybody else around me sleeps.

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sharing this blog, you are amazing and have really opened my eyes. As someone who has attempted suicide and continues to battle suicidal thoughts when in a depressive episode, your story has really touched me.

    Thank you and best wishes.

    • Dear Scarlet,

      This morning I woke up and your message was the first thing I read. It made my day.
      Thank you very much. I hope you know how precious and valued you are. I really feel for you and I know that it takes a remarkable amount of strength to cope with all the challenges that you are faced with on a daily basis. Sometimes hourly basis. I am glad you have your dogs, your partner and your creativity to help you along. I am happy that what I write helps in any way at all. Please take care of yourself.
      Sending you lots of love and all best wishes, Sangeeta.
