Losing motivation doesn’t happen in a swift snap of a finger; it’s a slow, draining process that makes you feel guilty for having not accomplished anything in a day. You feel unproductive and hate yourself for it but you’re not doing anything to get back on track. It can happen most times when you don’t have the passion for doing your job or when everything feels like a daunting obligation. But it can also happen even when you like what you’re doing, and that’s the worst feeling. It’s not the same with completely losing your passion for something, but it surely makes you feel that way sometimes.
A person with thin skin is someone who’s sensitive in nature. He/she is easily offended or hurt by criticism, disapproval, or any manner opposite to what he/she considers as gentle and kind.
Being soft is different from having thin skin, although they are commonly misused, depending on how it’s used as a description. When you describe someone as soft, it can mean lots of things — sensitive, caring, weak, insecure, pleaser. And mostly, these words can also describe someone who has thin skin. As opposed to a person with thick skin, they wouldn’t feel a knife to their back because they’re used to the pain or they didn’t expect people to treat them nicely.
Not only are online classes a hassle and at some points ineffective (depending on the curriculum and nature of the degree program) but can also be unfair to the students in terms of school tuition fees. Students are obligated to pay services that they can’t utilize because they’re studying in their homes. As a student, it all boils down to self-teaching and disciplining yourself to not become too comfortable and familiar with the place. Your home is your sanctuary of peace, a place for relaxation and bonding with the family, or at least it was.
Negative thoughts come from a place of self-pity and insecurity inside us, because who wants to be remembered as someone who failed right? Nobody would want that, especially in your twenties. We’re pressured to excel and never to fail because if you will, you’re branded as a failure for life. When making choices, we’re taught to always choose the least dangerous one, the least risky one, or the choice that so far guarantees our desired results.
Setting priorities entails categorizing a task according to importance, urgency, preference, or any other variable you like to associate it with to achieve work efficiency. It also increases your focus and concentration on your personal goals. Setting priorities help you create a vision for yourself — knowing what you want to do for the rest of your life. It makes you more self-aware of your strengths and weaknesses, hobbies, time management, and knowing which of these we value more and which matter to us more. Then our time wouldn’t have to be wasted.
