I realised social media is distracting me

I am in Class X. I’ve been good in academics, but recently I realised social media is distracting me. I have self-esteem issues and so I don’t wear my glasses as prescribed. It’s very hard to read anything that is far. During my maths examinations recently I couldn’t see the time on the clock properly. Because of this I could not plan my writing and I think I am going to lose a lot of marks now. I cannot share this with anyone because nobody hears me out. My mother is angry with me because I’m not getting marks. I don’t know what to do. Sometimes, I want to hurt myself but I’ve never done it so far. I’m scared my reputation among my teachers and classmates will be affected. I want to be a NASA scientist when I grow up, but that just seems so impossible. I always feel like crying. It’s hard to control my emotion but I don’t trust anyone enough to open up. Everyone has high expectation of me but I feel I can’t fulfill them. Help me.

You are good at academics and capable of doing your best if you set your heart to it. You seem to be under great pressure. As for your glasses, although you may not like to use it, it is a necessity. You must not lose your focus in academics because you are not okay wearing glasses. The loss is yours. You have to make a choice, be smart and choose the better option. In order to do your best and achieve your goal you just start focusing. Goals can be achieved only by hard work and determination. Social media is a means to keep you connected with others, it is not a compulsion. If you feel it is contributing to your distraction, keep off it. Prioritize your needs. Becoming anxious will add to your stress and not help you do your best. No one is perfect and it’s okay to make mistakes. We all learn from our mistakes. Love yourself and give positive affirmations to yourself such as “I can do it”, “I feel good” etc. to keep going. Stay calm and focused. Build your confidence and take small steps towards your goal. Start today to have a bright future.
