I have never EVER been good at school. I struggled every day. Nothing ever came easy. I didn't really learn to read until 5th grade and to this day I can't tell time or make change. Don't even ask about a foreign language. So how did I learn to make it through college.
OK I didn't really make it through college I rocked it out. Once I learned that I don't like to study during the day and not everyone has to read upright. I use put on my head phones and listen to music and write papers all night long. What did my poor roommates think? I don't think they liked it very much. Matter of fact I don't blame half of them for having never spoke to me after we parted ways.
So what has that got to do with life today not a whole lot but I like to think that even though it takes me 5 to 10 times longer to learn something or even understand something that I will eventually get it. I have to believe that I have the capacity to eventually learn what comes easy to everyone else.
Take a quick look at how YOU learn and then remember to be kind to yourself. Some of us need to make the same mistake over and over again. I believe in you.
