Reflecting on the things you’ve said and done is important to growing as a person.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, we overdo it once we think about or actually go to college. There are so many questions: “Did I pick the right school?” “Is this the right major for me?” “What DO I want to do?” “Who am I?” “What’s next?” “Skip a shower today?” “Drop out, transfer, or stick it out?” “How safe is it to eat 2-week old pizza?”
It’s ridiculous the number of questions you’ll ask yourself. (Let’s not think about the questions that come from the family, our friends, professors, etc.)
So, do yourself a favor and keep it simple.
“Did I do the right thing?”
Okay, then re-evaluate your decision and work to never be in that situation, or prepare yourself to handle that situation differently in the future.
Cool. Now, think about how it benefited you, and how you can build on this benefit.
Keep it simple.
Don’t let “overthinking” become a second job, or a second major. You won’t get extra class credit for it.
You’ll just get extra stressed.
