In any given school year or work week, there is so much we can stress about - academics, career, finances, etc.- so much so that the relationships we have or can have in our lives should be a means of support rather than an additional stressor.
Sometimes, the way we perceive other people can get in the way of relationship-building, but here are three things I’ve concluded from the past three years of college life:
- People are not as cool as you think they are.
- People are just as awkward as you think you are.
- People are more willing to help you than you think they are.
Sure, there are a lot of cool and a lot of awkward moments at MIT, but all together, I think we balance out pretty well. :)
