The CPA Exam community & online study group to help you pass!
Did you ever have one of those days where you just felt like giving up, when it all seems just too overwhelming and you start wondering if it will end up being a big, fat waste of time in the end? Well today is one of those days for me and maybe I shouldn't be writing a blog post on such a topic but I can't imagine I'm the only one who goes through these moments.
I shared my feelings with my best friend, thank God for best friends otherwise we'd implode! Anyway, she allowed me to sing my "poor me" song while the ever so sad violins played in the background of my mind. She listened as I cried about all that has gone wrong, will go wrong, and will never go right. When I was done she looked at me and very logically discussed all the things that I spoke to her about and what made the most sense to take off my plate to relieve some of the stress; "I think you need to take a break, just put the studying aside for a few months.... go away for the weekend and relax!" Bless her heart. Knowing full well that would never happen, I agreed, wiped my tears and thanked her for listening.
Taking a break is not an option, not for me. I'm either committed (hmmmm.....may be I should be :-) ) or not. Everyone's got baggage of some type, that's life - you have your cry, eat your ice cream and move on. And unless the goal is completely out of range of capability then there is no giving up, there is no "taking a break". I'm still tired, and I'm still frustrated and maybe I will go to bed a little earlier tonight instead of studying, but giving up, taking a break?......no, that's just not an option. I am so glad that I found this community, where else could I possibly share this with so many who understand so well.
