I can relate to Eddie. When I was in my previous college I didnít know what I was doing for a while. I was trying to figure out what was going on in the class room when we were learning a new technique learning a new formula in math. I had just changed my medications and I didnít know what was going on. Everything was difficult for me at that point. I wanted to give up. When it came to not being successful at not getting the formula I wasnít fully understanding what was going on. I didnít know if I wasnít doing one of the steps right. I couldnít figure out if I was not fully grasping the concept of the formula. When it came down to it I was having so much difficulty.
When I am looking back at the situation I see that I could have taken a step back from the formula and really tried to break it down and asked for helped to see if that would have reduced my frustration. I know that when I did ask someone for help I had a better success with the formula and that was a good thing. It became all about how I decided to use my mind and not allow myself to break down or shut off when I felt defeated would have reduced my frustration and would have majorly increased my chances of success.
When it came to this experience I have learned so many things. I have learned that I cannot always do things on my own and itís ok to ask for help. I have also learned that when it comes to things that I donít always fully grasp that when I take a step back or look at the problem from a different point of view I will get a better picture of what the teacher was asking for and will be able to do the problem.
