Why am stressing so much over this?
So I'm in advanced classes and I try hard in school, but I never feel like I'm trying hard enough. My mom is always saying "you can do better than this I know you can" and when I got a ninety nine percent on my test my dad said "You should be getting a hundred percent." I just feel stressed but then I feel guilty for it because there are people working harder than I am. Sometimes I don't even know who I am anymore and I can't sleep at night because of it. I'm always trying to impress my parents but I feel like I'm never good enough for them. And now my life is just trying to get into a university and become a scientist or a doctor. I'm not sure I want to be a doctor or scientist, and I just don't want to wake up every morning to a life I hate, but I don't want to disappoint my parents either. Why am I stressing so much over this? Any tips on how to relieve some of the stress or anxiety?
