Default b proud of urself

Why r u being so hard on urself? There r soooooo many reasons u should b very proud of urself for, two of which are the fact that u have taken the exam (which requires alot of courage & just thinking abt entering the hall freaks me out) and secondly, u should be sooo proud of urself for being strong & deciding to take it again & starting to plan this soon! I, myself, am proud of u for that

Please don't give up. U have the advantage of knowing what u'v done wrong the first time, where ur weak points are & I'm 100% sure that u have an idea of what u want to correct this time. Just calm down, have faith in urself and start planning slowly & wisely & I'm 100% sure that u'll ace it next time

I dunno abt the rest, but I have definetly failed so many times in my life, and i only feel that it made me stronger Best of luck to u
