I just wanted to say I think you are doing amazing!


Everyone is different. But as someone who just went through high school and tafe with a mental illness, I know it can be really hard. And trust me when I say it's not your fault.


You're doing the best you can, and that's awesome! You might compare yourself to your classmates thinking you're not doing 'good enough.' But that is so not true. The effort they put into studying, you use to get through the day. So it makes sense that you might find the course itself harder because you are already puttting so much energy and effort into getting through the day!


I agree with@Tiny_leaf that it's a problem with the course, not you. Learning difficulties are not your fault. Even if they are invisible, they are just as valid as any other difficulty/disability/illness, visible or invisible. And you deserve the help to study with your difficulties.


I've learnt it's so important to be kind to myself. I try to accept that I have an illness that makes things harder. It's not my fault. And I am doing so well to get through the day, let alone do something. So I deserve some self compassion and kindness because I'm going through something difficult.

Instead of beating myself up for what I don't/can't do, I try to celebrate the things I can do. Even if it's just getting out of be. Making it to class, even if I don't participate at all.

I try to recognise that my best looks different every day, and that's ok. I deserve to be kind to myself.

I hope some of this resonates with you.

I'm so proud of you for trying your best despite the obstacles you have to deal with.

All the best ❤️
