Exam Pressure - ex trying to bring me down watch

    Two months ago, I had ended a toxic relationship with my girlfriend. She was disrespecting me and just left me hanging as she lost feelings for me which hurt. But right now, I feel soo much pressure to beat my ex in exams as she's getting better grades than she first did at the beginning of the year. When I got with her, I had committed my self to help her to get the best possible grades as she got D's and E's and to now having C/B grades and getting near to A grades. It makes me feel down as she's so determined to beat me. I just feel a mix of emotions right now. I feel used and it affects my self worth. What can I do to not let this bother me? I really want the best possible grades but having this sense of competition, I feel compelled to overwork etc.

    Honestly focus on your own work and do the best you can. The competition is something that you choose and so you cna decide not to compete if you dont wnat to. Its silly, especially if its detrimental . To do otherwise is dumb.

    I don't wish to compete in it. And you're right. There's only a few months left anyways, just have to do my best of my abilities.
