    You Are Imperfectly Perfect

    Those Always wanting to be perfect; striving to be perfect; getting the perfect grades and doing everything to perfection... Can't love themselves for their faults they aren't allowed to make. They can't love their imperfections; they can never make peace with themselves...

    It drives me insane that the American school

    system traps people in this system of stress and self-hatred. We're told nothing will become of us if we don't maintain a perfect little 4.0 GPA or higher. It's ridiculous. No one number should be able to represent my learning experience. I should be driven to learn because of...

    As Opposed to My Family

    My entire family has always valued education EXTREMELY highly.  And as a result, I also do.  Not as much as they do, but I do think it's very important. The thing is that they talk to me as if I don't make perfect grades, the world will end.  It frustrates the...

    My personal belief is

    that the American school system is too focused on grades. The whole purpose of school is to learn not to get a certain score so you won't be ridiculed, shamed, punished and judged. The fact that small mistakes from as young as elementary school are held against you in the school...
