“During university, it’s common for us, students to have big goals and ambitions. Universities can provide a lot of opportunities to help us succeed. However, this can also make things a little overwhelming. Sometimes, in our attempt to achieve a lot, we lose sight of what we value the most. It’s easy to do things because others are doing it, or because we are told that we should be doing it, or even because we think it might look good on your resume.
All of that is fine, but only as long as we enjoy whatever we’re doing. When we get to the point where we aren’t happy, it’s time for us to stop and reevaluate our decisions. At the end of the day, our mental health is far more important than any class, club position, or job. You know yourself best, so find your own way. Don’t do things for the wrong reason. Only do what you love. Only do what makes you happy!”
