Why am I not happy in college?
Everybody says that College is fun with cool friends and parties but What is the cause of my unhappiness?
Yea it’s normal, there are times that you will be unhappy with the way college is going.
But Life in college isn’t as easy as it seems; you’ve got books for read, unnecessary problems to solve, annoying lecturers and unpleasant friends.
But you can be happy in college if you want to.
Why you are not happy in College:
1.You compare yourself to others:
Nothing brings you down more than comparing yourself to other people; by the way they dress, talk or even relate.
Just like everyone is different and unique that’s the same way you are.
Funny enough, some of your friends might be faking their happiness, smile, new clothes etc, what matters is how you feel about yourself .
If you really want to know more about people around you, talk to them, get to know what makes them happy, relate it to yourself and check if its okay with you.
2. You are not alone:
Just like I said at the beginning, you are not alone, some days might not go well as usual,
there are times that you will even regret leaving your house to attend lectures,
your lecturer might mark you down for a question you answered correctly,
you will feel like everybody is doing more than you are doing; you are putting your best by seeing nothing in return. All these are part of life in College.
They are stories to tell, don’t hunt on yourself too much, do you best in every situation and remember that you are not alone.
3. You over think:
Just because things are not going in your favour doesn’t mean you should overthink or subject yourself to stress. Take things easy and do the needful.
Not being happy in college is a personal thing, you don’t need to think too much. Quit complaining, giving excuses and blaming anyone for your unhappiness because it’s in your hands.
