Okay, little vent
I hate my brain. I have a level exams but can’t focus because I’m just always consumed with toxic thoughts. I can’t stop comparing myself to my friends who I always tell myself are prettier, smarter and have better personalities than me. My brain is just in a constant knot and my plummeting self esteem means I’ve also become disgustingly judgemental of other people. I want to change my mindset but I don’t know how. My deficiencies are all I ever think about.

I felt the same about a week ago as i got more panicked about exams, I ended up having a nervous episode which was just a break down for a few days but I think it helps now to know that if you're this close to exams its not worth worrying about anything else. Everyone will tell you to take breaks and days off but if you're anything like me you'll find that really hard because of how close exams are so it mostly helps me to do something else while revising such as watching tv or listening to music because I feel more relaxed but not like I'm cheating.

It sounds
like classic anxiety symptoms.Your brain is just going into overtime due to exam stress.Try and get some exercise into your day and also do some relaxation techniques you can find on line.Build in some treats for yourself during the revising day.
