Hi lovelies! How are you all?
So, the season of board exams has started in India. I’ve been a survivor of these so-called life-deciding exams, so I know how you guys are feeling. I went through the sleepless, anxiety filled nights which literally made me sick to my stomach. Those months were horrendous and terrifying. I had the pressure of scoring a 95% plus or else, as I was told, I’d fail in life. Well, apparently, none of it turned out true. I definitely didn’t score anything close to 95%, and I’m more than happy, actually, very content with my life right now. I decided to take the unconventional path to happiness and thankfully, my parents led me through it all happily.
I know you guys are feeling the same. I know the feeling of standing outside the board examination hall and just praying the superpower to get us through it all. But honestly, chill. Work hard, work smart and relax. Don’t think of your board examination as a life-deciding paper. It’ll all be alright in the end, given you find your passion and follow it with integrity and dedication. In the end, exposure is what matters and no college or no amount of marks can give you that but you yourself. You have to decide for yourself and your contentment.
Study with an aim to achieve what you want, but don’t obsess over this. India has started one hell of a situation and just wants to grow worse with it. Don’t give in to the pressures of this situation. Work the best you can but don’t rely too much on the results, because board marking is kind of weird and good. Be content and satisfied with what you write in your answer sheets. Don’t linger on too much on something that goes wrong. Please remember, you have a huge life waiting for you after these days. And in the future, your marks, your college, your degrees, nothing will matter. What will matter is who you are as a person, and who you are as a seeker.
ALL THE BEST AND CHILL!!
