what can i do?
    #2222018 - 01/06/04 02:16 AM (14 years, 16 days ago)

i feel like i am constantly letting down my parents...my grades at college, my nerdy friends, the fact that im not as good with numbers as the rest of the family. my father is always telling me how proud he is of me, and believe me, i love making him proud, but i think his pride is unjustified. i want to work my ass off and let him prove to everyone that i am as great as he wants to think, but i dont know how. does anyone have any advice? i need help getting over this wall that keeps me from working as hard as i can.

Here comes the sun, do n do do,
Here comes the sun, and I say,
It's alright...

Sounds to me like you need to find something you really love doing

You dont have to make your dad proud of you, just do what you really like, its so much more fullfilling.
Of course, if he said he was proud of you thats a bonus.
I think you need to be more confident about yourself. I bet you're a great person but can't admit it to yourself.

Yea, I have the same feelings sometimes and I broke down to my dad about it not too long ago and he was more helpfull than I could have ever imagined. He told me that he was proud that I was doing what I was doing and that grades dont matter so much now (not that I do badly at all) and all that matters is making it through. He said he's sad i'm gone wish I hadn't left but he understands that i'm gonna have problems (and problems i've had since i've been here, let me tell you) and that he can't speak for both him AND my mom but he told me to call him whenever cause he's never too busy for anything. That set my mind at ease after hearing that, maybe you should just talk to him.

Greatness is not guaged by the ability to handle numbers. Many people in all walks of life are quick with numbers. It is not sensical to gauge your value against the degree of hardship you have to endure in your work.

This is a matter of perception. No matter how hard you work, you will feel as though you have not met a standard you have set for yourself.

Cultivate the sincere intention to do what's best for yourself and others to the best of your capacities. The intention will guide your actions, and your sincerity will keep you peaceful and satisfied. This is what will set you apart from the mundane achievments of ordinary labourers.
