Quite often, college is a place where students get nostalgic about the whole educational set up. Probably unaware about their own personality for whatever reasons, found unable to sketch the line between self-discovery and being something that you're really not meant to be.
In this short span of time, we'll learn how college years are counted merely as time spent on discovering and learning things around, until you become a productive member of society. Howbeit, during your stint, there are few pointers to help you catch up with 'learning to be who are you', amid the college bustle.
Primarily, the most beautiful truth about who we are is that we are individually unique. And there's no point in becoming something that we are not.
Although you would be studying and working with many in college, it is good to abide by your preferences. Stretch not too much to lose focus on your ultimate objectives and choices in life. Set your life to revolve around your needs first.
Learn from the inspirations, but do not copy them. Styles could be umpteen in number. But stick to your own style. Identify your greatest strengths and abilities, and nurture the right ones. Comparing yourself with others, must be the least that you should be thinking of. Comparison isn't a way out here. The more you keep comparing yourself to others, the lesser you are growing in the 'real you'.
Rather than adjusting yourself into people's perspectives of you, walk the route that can really accommodate you. Select something where you fit in better. Being different is an unusual attraction in itself. It is probably a code.
Let improvement play the cards for you. This applies to your hand at academics, extra-curricular activities, sports, social interaction skills etc, related to college. Staying lukewarm in responding to common darts like popularity, negative attitudes and famous gossips, would help in the long run.
Get along with the flow, and be beneficial to others and yourself. Cement your strengths with confidence. Be yourself and stay far from comparison which leads to resentment. It isn't a fair game to judge someone else's life or looks, without mending your own.
