I don't know why. I get so annoyed when I see other people more successful than me. It's starting to show it's face. I complain if someone has higher grades than me. Gets more attention than me etc. I've spoken to a nurse about it but it's not helped. I tried to think of how I'm successful too but after a few days, I fall back into the hole again. How can I be happy with myself? I've gotten private tutors because my uni grades were low. I'm scared if I get another bad grade, I'll treat others bad again. It's not their fault but I start hating the high achievers because I'm not one.

Channel that envy into motivation. I know you mentioned that you've seen private tutors about your uni work. Is there a particular thing that;s holding you back? Is it the desire to be better than others? You need to focus on yourself. Keep comparing yourself to yourself, strive for personal bests and you'll get there. Enjoy the process as much as you can. If you're starting off with thirds for example, keep striving for a 2:2 and then a 2:1 and so on. It'll make the journey much more manageable and you'll be less likely to feel disappointment as you'll see the improvement more. Good luck, I know the feeling, it's horrible. You will get where you need to be x
