The internet memes about the struggles of college life are never-ending. It’s nice to know that more people out there share the same sentiments when it comes to surviving secondary education. But in all seriousness, there are some things you’ll go through in college that you’re going to stress about, even when you shouldn’t.
Read on for five things you should probably stop complaining about in college.
1. Having no time
If I got paid for every time I said I didn’t have time for something when I was in college, I’d be rich AF. With 24 hours in an entire day, sometimes we’re unaware of how much time we’re actually letting waste away. Once you graduate, you’ll realize that you actually had all the time in the world, you just didn’t do a good job of prioritizing.
2. Being single
In what world is being single wrong? Being in college means balancing your academic life with your social life while also making time for yourself and sometimes having a significant other can actually distract you from that. Take some time to really embrace this period of self-discovery before trying to jump into committing yourself to being with another person.
3. Having no friends
By this, I mean having a group of close friends on campus but still somehow feeling like you don’t have any friends. It’s okay to not be friends with everyone on campus. By your junior year, you should focus more on the relationships you’ve already built with those around you and make sure that those are built to last way after graduation.
4. Not doing enough
In the age of social media, it’s easy to take a look at the lives of your peers and determine that, even with all you’ve accomplished, you’re still not as good as the next person. Do yourself a favor and stop comparing where you’re headed to where your peers are headed. You’ll thank yourself later.
5. Not having it all together
LOL, you’re not supposed to. The end.
