In General Discussions
I saw that 3 students at National Taiwan University committed suicide this week. Online discussions revolve around school responsibilities, education, family reviews. After graduating from National Taiwan University for 12 years, it was not until later that I discovered that many people around me were living hard and melancholy. Here I share my personal experiences and reflections. Whether it is for Taiwan University students or other outstanding children, it is also for myself or other friends who are working hard. On the road of life, we all have to keep learning. 1. Accepting weakness is strength photo background removing The biggest pressure to read NTU is "NTU". I still remember when I nervously ran to the senior sister after the distribution and asked the senior sister: What should I do to prepare before going to college? I still remember the senior student smiling and saying: Use the only summer vacation you have, let's have a good rest! In terms of schoolwork, they used to be the first and second place in the class, the whole school, and the whole district. There is always a first place in the class, and there is also a pawn. Not only the grades, but also the clubs and extracurriculars are investing more than others. Whoever became a cadre, who has done several general calls, who has elected student representatives, is all in Bibi. The juniors and seniors have to compare whether they have made up the TOEFL and GRE, and who has found a good internship... To put it bluntly, these strengths and weaknesses are compared. Competitive learning from peers is great, but not necessarily for everyone. If you can choose, the object of comparison should be set to yourself. After all, those data-based and quantitative indicators that define who are strong and who are weak are probably not where your talent and passion lie. Only if you do not fall into the competition of objective data, will you have the opportunity to find your own position in the future. Thinking back ten thousand steps, even if it is the happiness of living mediocrely, I think it is much happier than the achievement that I force myself to achieve.
