The Years That Matter Most - How College Makes or Breaks Us
How much do I want to read more? 5/10
The author tells a story about a girl who put much pressure on herself to succeed in school because of all the beliefs around her.
She became identified with her results at school. Being accepted would mean everything, and being rejected would mean end of the world.
I'm sure lots of us can relate to this.
It reads like a novel. Much much words than would actually be needed to get the idea. Have a read if you have time, or if you want to practice speed-reading.
