Hey @j95 In support of your goals can I help you reframe this so it's not you whipping yourself with a stick?
What about asking:
"Who do I need to speak to for support around learning this? I have learnt many things in my life and now this is the thing I want to learn next. How can I make that happen?"

I think that's a great thing to do @j95 the brain has to be in a certain mode to learn. If you're feeling crap, the best thing to do is to go home and tend to yourself rather than try and force it.
Just promise me you won't use the time to tell yourself mean things. You are a long way from dumb. you show how smart and wise you are often but being smart doesn't mean you don't have crappy days. look after yourself today, ok?

I have areas of study that have been really difficult and I need lots of help @j95 I have struggled with maths since about 3rd grade. The only time I ever managed to understand it was when I had a tutor.
Is that an option where you are?
I haven't kept track of you posting your goals although ben tells me you're doing an amazing job. I remember one was about accessing student services, was that for this sort of stuff?

Hey @j95, do you think you could see that tutor again?
